  • About Author

«For the centenary of the Great October Revolution, I propose to examine some of its epistemological-cum-political implications and lessons for us today. I shall start from the lessons of the first, and probably still the most stimulating examination on how to understand and react to painful history: some relevant aspects of Walter Benjamin’s so-called Theses on the Concept of History.»
