Summary

John Boyd was a fighter pilot in the Korean War, an instructor at the US Air Force Fighter Weapons School, and arguably America's greatest military thinker of the 20th Century. His concept of the OODA Loop helped guide the US military during two wars against Saddam Hussein's Iraq. This 4000-word 'long essay' was originally prepared for the War in the Modern World program at King's College London by Daniel Ford, an American journalist and historian. Revised 2014. With illustrations, source notes, bibliography, and a chapter from the author's book, A Vision So Noble.

    In Defence of the Enlightenment

    Tzvetan Todorov argues that although our liberal democracies are the  offspring of the Enlightenment, they also illustrate the ways in which  its ideas have been distorted and perverted. People living in  contemporary democracies are often baffled by phenomena which resist  easy judgement: globalisation and media omnipotence; disinformation and  state-sponsored torture; moralism and the right of intervention; the  dominance of economics and the triumph of technology.  
    In this  book, Todorov shows that we cannot learn lessons from the past unless we  know how to relate them to the present. He demonstrates that what  remains relevant to today is the spirit expressed in the core principles  and values for which the Enlightenment stood. In a period of great  uncertainty, In Defence of the Enlightenment could not be more timely.

    The covers were tumbled and awry, as though she had just left it, and the memory of the dream was so strong that instinctively he found himself searching the floor to see if the dream explosion had thrown her down....But they were odd and brooding, too, this night and he barely listened to Dennermans complaints about not being able to get good phone service or his wifes comments on the disgusting variety of television commercials they had these days....Although you could be right, you know; Ive had plenty of time to think it over these last few weeks, after they got you, and its possible theyre Russians after all. ...But thats saving two or three hundred million dollars a year-and if they pay only ten or twenty per cent of that for the use of Tylerton, its still dirt cheap for them and a fortune for whoever took over Tylerton....The expression on the mans face was one he had read about but never actually seen: Dorchins mouth fell open and his eyes went wide, and though he managed to make a sound that might have been a question, it was not in words.
