In his international bestseller, To Fight Against this Age, Rob Riemen explores the theoretical weaknesses of fascism, which depends on a politics of resentment, the incitement of anger and fear, xenophobia, the need for scapegoats, and its hatred of the life of the mind. His response explores the meaning of European humanism with its universal values of truth, beauty, justice, and love for life--values that are the origin and basis of a democratic civilization.
What has influenced the global resurgence of fascism? How can we revive democracy and combat the present crisis facing Western civilization?
Rob Riemen is an essayist and cultural philosopher. He is the founder of the Nexus Institute, an international center devoted to intellectual reflection and to inspiring Western cultural and philosophical debate.
