Voltaire contra los fanaticos by SAVATER FERNANDO

By SAVATER FERNANDO

Cree lo que yo creo y lo que no puedes creer, o perecerás. Cree o te aborrezco; cree o te haré todo el daño que pueda. ” Ese period el dogma del fanatismo según Voltaire. Y, como los atentados contra Charlie Hebdo volvieron a demostrar, ese sigue siendo hoy, dos siglos y medio después. Así que no es informal que este autor se haya convertido en el fenómeno editorial del momento en Francia, con más de 150.000 ejemplares vendidos en un solo mes. Voltaire, los angeles estrella editorial de los angeles rentrée, como tituló Echo, fue según Savater el primer intelectual, un pensador que nunca se conformó con entender el mundo, sino que ansiaba transformarlo y que entendió como nadie antes que el texto period un poderoso instrumento de propaganda. De ahí su estilo directo, divertido, nunca frívolo, en el que prima siempre l. a. voluntad pedagógica. Los paralelismos entre autor y editor son claros. En Savater reconocemos a Voltaire y por eso nadie mejor que él para exprimir su pensamiento y hacer lo que él nunca hizo, exponerlo en forma de máximas y aforismos. Se nos permite así conocer a un hombre genial, que dedicó su vida a combatir a siglos de intolerancia, de rutinas dogmáticas, de autoridad mal entendida y peor ejercida. ¿Sus armas? Una aguda inteligencia y un espíritu sarcásticamente irreverente que impregnan toda su obra.
