Aujourd'hui, quelque part dans l'Himalaya Au Népal, les moines d'un monastère bouddhiste ont été décimés par un mal inconnu. Sur place, Lisa Cummings, médecin, et Painter Crowe, agent de la Sigma Force, découvrent un pur cauchemar : les moines semblent avoir sombré dans la folie, le meurtre, et le cannibalisme. Au même moment, à Copenhague L'exemplaire de la Bible ayant appartenu à Charles Darwin doit être mis aux enchères et déchaîne une lutte meurtrière pour sa possession. Quel secret recèlent ces pages soigneusement annotées ? Et quel lien peut-il y avoir entre Darwin et un laboratoire troglodyte en Pologne, oublié depuis 1945 ? Soixante ans après la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, les monstres dont rêvaient d'accoucher les maîtres du IIIe Reich sont sur le point de voir le jour...

LÕaltZration dÕun texte original est un point fondamental pour le croyant, car si ce texte comportait des erreurs ^ lÕorigine il ne peut pas provenir dÕun Dieu supposZ parfait. Le but de cette Ztude est d'Ztablir une reconstitution historique pour savoir quand, pourquoi et par qui le texte hZbreu a ZtZ modifiZ et de constater que les donnZes chronologiques provenant du Pentateuque et du Nouveau Testament sont en excellent accord. Elles proviennent donc dÕun texte original qui a ZtZ prZservZ sans altZration majeure. Par consZquent les variantes actuelles (2% du texte) proviennent de corrections effectuZes par les scribes hasmonZens dÕorigine pharisienne, de -160 ^ -63, validZes ensuite par les rabbins entre 90 et 130, quand celles-ci Ztaient en accord avec leur enseignement (Talmud). Ces corrections rabbiniques ont ensuite ZtZ recopiZes fid lement par les Massor tes qui ont vocalisZ ce texte hZbreu entre 600 et 930.

Revisiting The Jewish Question

What does it mean to be Jewish? What is an anti-Semite? Why does the enigmatic identity of the men who founded the first monotheistic religion arouse such passions? We need to return to the Jewish question. We need, first, to distinguish between the anti-Judaism of medieval times, which persecuted the Jews, and the anti-Judaism of the Enlightenment, which emancipated them while being critical of their religion. It is a mistake to confuse the two and see everyone from Voltaire to Hitler as anti-Semitic in the same way. Then we need to focus on the development of anti-Semitism in Europe, especially Vienna and Paris, where the Zionist idea was born. Finally, we need to investigate the reception of Zionism both in the Arab countries and within the Diaspora. Re-examining the Jewish question in the light of these distinctions and investigations, Roudinesco shows that there is a permanent tension between the figures of the ‘universal Jew’ and the ‘territorial Jew’. Freud and Jung split partly over this issue, which gained added intensity after the creation of the State of Israel in 1948 and the Eichmann trial in 1961. Finally, Roudinesco turns to the Holocaust deniers, who started to suggest that the Jews had invented the genocide that befell their people, and to the increasing number of intellectual and literary figures who have been accused of anti-Semitism. This thorough re-examination of the Jewish question will be of interest to students and scholars of modern history and contemporary thought and to a wide readership interested in anti-Semitism and the history of the Jews.

Born on the same day in 1809, Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin were true contemporaries. Though shaped by vastly different environments, they had remarkably similar values, purposes, and approaches. In this exciting new study, James Lander places these two iconic men side by side and reveals the parallel views they shared of man and God. While Lincoln is renowned for his oratorical prowess and for the Emancipation Proclamation, as well as many other accomplishments, his scientific and technological interests are not widely recognized; for example, many Americans do not know that Lincoln is the only U.S. president to obtain a patent. Darwin, on the other hand, is celebrated for his scientific achievements but not for his passionate commitment to the abolition of slavery, which in part drove his research in evolution. Both men took great pains to avoid causing unnecessary offense despite having abandoned traditional Christianity. Each had one main adversary who endorsed scientific racism: Lincoln had Stephen A. Douglas, and Darwin had Louis Agassiz. With graceful and sophisticated writing, Lander expands on these commonalities and uncovers more shared connections to people, politics, and events. He traces how these two intellectual giants came to hold remarkably similar perspectives on the evils of racism, the value of science, and the uncertainties of conventional religion. Separated by an ocean but joined in their ideas, Lincoln and Darwin acted as trailblazers, leading their societies toward greater freedom of thought and a greater acceptance of human equality. This fascinating biographical examination brings the mid-nineteenth-century discourse about race, science, and humanitarian sensibility to the forefront using the mutual interests and pursuits of these two historic figures.
