Amartya Sen, "The Idea of Justice"
Belknap Press of Harvard University Press | ISBN: 0674060474 | 2011 | PDF | 497 pages | 1,25 mb

Social justice: an ideal, forever beyond our grasp; or one of many practical possibilities? More than a matter of intellectual discourse, the idea of justice plays a real role in how—and how well—people live. And in this book the distinguished scholar Amartya Sen offers a powerful critique of the theory of social justice that, in its grip on social and political thinking, has long left practical realities far behind.

The Memory of Justice focuses on the question of guilt surrounding war crimes in modern history. This weighty film takes as its starting point the Nuremberg trials in 1945 and 1946, in which central figures from the Third Reich stood trial. What is the relationship between collective guilt and individual guilt? Does such a thing as universally applicable morality exist? Is it acceptable for states to impose their will and laws on other countries? These are just some of the questions put forward by director Marcel Ophuls.

Russian-European Relations in the Balkans and Black Sea Region: Great Power Identity and the Idea of Europe

Russian-European Relations in the Balkans and Black Sea Region: Great Power Identity and the Idea of Europe By Vsevolod Samokhvalov
English | PDF | 2017 | 296 Pages | ISBN : 3319520776 | 11.5 MB

This book provides a detailed analysis of Russia’s ‘great power identity’ and the role of Europe in forming this identity. ‘Great power identity’ implies an expansionist foreign policy, and yet this does not explain all the complexities of the Russian state. For instance, it cannot explain why Russia decided to take over Crimea, but provided only limited support to break-away regions in Eastern Ukraine.

British conceptual artist Ryan Gander is “big in Japan”. It’s a visually sophisticated country, and they appreciate his frequently playful works that may look like one thing, but often mean something quite different. In this film the artist explores Japanese visual culture through symbols, including the geisha, samurai and cherry blossom to find out what they reveal about their past, present and future.
