Summary

This is a collection of judgments. In „The Analects” the mystical layer is completely absent, as well as the natural-philosophical problems. Outwardly unsystematically arranged aphorisms are united by the theme of creating an ideal social order, which for Confucius is an expression of the Tao in the Celestial Empire. Its implementation is possible as a result of self-improvement of a person through familiarization with „writing / culture” (wen).

    A music historian uncovers Nazi Germany’s use of Mozart as a WWII propaganda tool in this “intriguing study [that] comprehends a range of vital topics” (Choice).   As the Nazi war machine expanded its bloody ambitions across Europe, the Third Reich sought to promote a sophisticated and even humanitarian image of German culture through the tireless promotion of Mozart’s music. In this revelatory book, Erik Levi draws on World War II era articles, diaries, speeches, and other archival materials to provide a new understanding of how the Nazis shamelessly manipulated Mozart for their own political advantage.  Mozart and the Nazis also explores the continued Jewish veneration of the composer during this period while also highlighting some of the disturbing legacies that resulted from the Nazi appropriation of his work. Enhanced by rare contemporary illustrations, Mozart and the Nazis is a fascinating addition to the study of music history, World War II propaganda, and twentieth century politics.
