About the Book: Est-ce la fin ou le retour de l'Histoire ? Qu'y a-t-il dans la tête d'un kamikaze ? Pourquoi Hegel et Kojève croyaient-ils que le Mal n'a plus d'avenir ? Qu'a confié le commandant Massoud à l'auteur de ce livre en 1981 puis en 1998 ? Que disent les ruines de Sarajevo et de Manhattan ? Comment un Normalien, disciple d'Althusser, se retrouve-t-il, à 20 ans, dans les maquis du Pakistan Oriental ? Michel Foucault était-il meilleur journaliste qu'Hemingway ? Pourquoi la guerre est-elle si " jolie " pour Proust, Apollinaire et Cocteau ? Quand le monde a-t-il basculé de la logique de Clausewitz à celle d'Oussama Ben Laden ? A quoi peut bien servir la philosophie dans les faubourgs de Bogota et de Bujumbura ? Suffirait-il, pour arrêter le massacre, de tendre la main aux damnés du tiers monde ? Que veulent les terroristes ?
