5.0 out of 5 stars Dynamite! 29 Nov. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The title means "Taboos at the Turn of the Millennium".
This book can be described as a summary of Esther Vilar's most important essays. She wrote it in 1998, looking back upon her own publications in the past three decades. It's so convincing it can almost be called the "world formula" in the fields of psychology and sociology. It's an eye-opener, enlightening, also witty, entertaining, and some passages will shock you! It deals with many different subjects, like religion, crime, the battle of the sexes, the modern phenomenon of "beautism", and a phenomenon the author calls "pleasure in non-freedom." What fascinates me most is the author's ability to explain the logical links between her theories in the different chapters; that's why you can only understand each chapter when you see it in the context of all the others - when you see the book as an integrated whole.
Too bad it's only available in the original German (BTW there's a new version now titled "Denkverbote : Tabus im 21. Jahrhundert") and in Spanish ("Prohibido Pensar"), but, seemingly, not yet in English... American people (especially males) don't know what you're missing!
