Revealing and enlightening, Conversations with Isaiah Berlin gives a close view of one of the foremost thinkers of our time. Philosopher and leading proponent of liberal thinking, Isaiah Berlin has changed our sense of history and the world. His impact on the intellectual and political views of the second half of the twentieth century alone makes it critical to understand his works and analyze his thoughts, and these conversations are a perfect introduction to both. This revised edition follows Isaiah Berlin from Petrograd to Oxford, Washington to Moscow, and London to Jerusalem. The topics range broadly from philosophy to music, history to literature, Judaism to Israel, Marx and Machiavelli to his extraordinary encounters with Anna Akhmatova and Boris Pasternak in post-war Russia.
