On rare occasions in this monumental book the writing gets slow or old-fashioned, but ‘Crowds and Power’ is still a well of information and ideas that resonates today as much as when it was published.

The style is abstract, erudite, and anecdotal, which makes Crowds and Power the sort of work that awes some readers with its profundity while irritating others with its elusiveness. E preciso che le due stelle sono per le pagine iniziali, le sole ben fatte e brillanti Massa chiusa,aperta,invisibili, masse aizzate, masse in fuga, fino alla classificazione delle mute, ci siamo, bravo Canetti.

Canetti ne fait pas exception. Waarmee hij zijn overtuiging demonstreert dat juist de pre-logische wereld der mythen ons veel te zeggen heeft, zeker over massa en macht. For example, the Marching Forest of the Army in Germany, a symbol of pan-Germanic strength and unity created by Bismarck was fatally disgraced by the Treaty of Versailles. Some are obvious once stated: Crowds and Power is also something like Dr Johnson’s dictionary.

I had heard that he was the prototype of the diabolical Julius King in A Fairly Honourable Defeatand I’d also read various lurid accounts of their affair. It feels epic because of the multitudinous stories. East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. Wounded beasts are dangerous, especially when new-found wealth is coupled to old resentments.


The Command Flight and Sting. But even here his insights are at least as provocative and stimulating as most organisational theorists today.

The Rising Throne of the Emperor of Byzantium. A long-term dipping-into book.

The Fear of being Touched. Dat soort identificatie, waarbij het ik door totale inleving daadwerkelijk in de ander metamorfoseert, is de machthebber uiteraard een gruwel. AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. To me, this is mister Canetti presenting his elaborate, pretentious, shallow, completely unsupported by research theories about crowds wlias the most patronizing and infurating way I’ve This is utter bullsht, or rather I should say I wholeheartedly believe it to be so.

May 27, Abner Rosenweig rated it canetto liked it. This is one of those philosophical works in which the author reimagines the world through powwr of the lenses of a compound eye.

Dit boek geeft ongehoord originele en inspirerende inzichten in de fenomenen massa en macht, en de inzichten in macht en bevel zijn naar mijn smaak zelfs snijdend en verontrustend. There is something in Canetti’s typology that is akin to Raul Hilberg’s Holocaust-studies classification of hundreds of millions poeer Europeans as either perpetrators, victims, or not entirely innocent bystanders – for Canetti seems to see human history as a sort of continuous political holocaust, a repetitive nightmare of power relations from which we cannot awake.

The Nature of the Parliamentary System. It was a threat not just to Clinton but to the essential conditions of elected government. Non solo per i riferimenti, ma per tutta l’impostazione. Who knew that an apparently sociological treatise could be so creative, so enthralling, so literate? Uses many anthropoligical examples, although some links are more tenuous than others. annd

He enjoys this and consequentially asks more and more questions; every answer he receives is an act of submission. Door die kracht van zijn beelden is dit boek erg literair, terwijl het non-fictie is; door de enorme eruditie ervan zie alleen al de ellenlange bronnenlijst aan het slot is het erg wetenschappelijk en dus weer niet literair; door de keuze voor een essayistisch-literaire stijl en vorm in plaats van een analytisch-verklarende crowda het echter weer niet wetenschappelijk.

Armed with a lifetime of reading in anthropology, psychology, political science and rhetoric–and equipped with a life traversing totalitarian governments, two world wars and knowledge of numerous languages–he weaves together stories of ancient and all-but forgotten cultures to me, at least in order to draw implications for modern pwoer.

One of the seminal books of the 20th century — a synthesis of anthropology, sociology, deep psychology, political science, and folklore as channeled by a brilliant Romanian Jew who witnessed the rise and fall of Hitler and Stalin.

The book is admirable for its erudition and scope, ranging through history, anthropology, mythology, psychology, politics, biology, and more to give us insight into the human condition.

Canetti’s world is one composed of human groups rather than words, but his achievement is to describe these groups and their dynamics as had never been done before. If you find the book, flip to the section called slias and you will be treated to a history of the modern world.

As in Nietzsche, there are idiosyncratic croads groupings and unexpected leaps between groupings. Interesting view of the behavior of crowds and leaders and how they interact and grow.
