    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    For Gustav Landauer, literary critic and anarchist, scholar of mysticism and participant of the Bavarian revolution, culture and politics occupied the same spiritual space. While identifying with ethical socialism, his Jewish sensibility increasingly gained over the years, not only, but in great measure due to Buber’s influence. This volume brings together leading scholars to assess Landauer’s ramified literary and political activities, his life as a Jew and anarchist, paying particular attention to his impact on Martin Buber.

    Reviews

    "Alla ricostruzione meticolosa e cesellata di un anarchico ben si addice un libro rimasto in gestazione per circa 17 anni, ma il risultato è la miglior ricerca collettiva oggi disponibile, a livello internazionale, sulla personalità e sul pensiero di uno dei grandi ebrei della simbiosi giudaico-tedesca d’inizio Novecento: Gustav Landauer. [...] Un prezioso indice, per nomi e temi, arricchisce il volume."
    Massimo Giuliani in: Humanitas 70,2/2015

    "Dieser reichhaltige, vielfältige, informative Band vermittelt einen lebendigen Eindruck von Landauers Leben, Denken und Persönlichlkeit. Er wird dazu beitragen, Landauers Werk auch der anglophonen Welt zu erschließen, und sei hiermit sowohl Forschern wie auch einer breiteren Öffentlichkeit ans Herz gelegt."
