    One thought on “How to Cure a Fanatic”

    1. Sencillamente, la mejor lectura de este mes. Sin duda. Se puede decir que el libro está dividido en tres partes: la primera, es una soberbia descripción del fanatismo y su método para curarlo (cuidado con su ironía; engancha) La segunda parte, nos habla del problema de Palestina e Israel y cual sería la mejor solución a este conflicto; y la tercera parte del libro nos habla sobre el por qué se hizo escritor (ay, esa ironía)

    2. كنت دائما ما أتساءل كيف يمكن لليهود، وبالكاد نجوا من الانقراض أمس، أن يتصرفوا بهذه البربرية والهمجية اليوم! ويبدو أن هذا التساؤل ألح على كثير من الإسرائيليين أنفسهم. وأحد هؤلاء هو الأديب الإسرائيلي الشهير آموس عوز المعروف بمواقفه "الحمائمية" في المجال السياسي؛ وأحد أبرز الم [...]

    3. „Нарекох себе си специалист по фанатизма и това не е шега. Ако чуете, че някъде по света , в колеж или университет, се открие катедра по сравнителна фанатизмология, не се съмнявайте, че аз ще бъде там и ще кандидатствам за преподавателско място. Като дете, отраснало в Йерусал [...]

    4. Как да излекуваме фанатик: izumen/2014/10/bl"Как да излекуваме фанатик?" - това е въпросът, който си задава Амос Оз в този сборник, съставен от две есета и едно интервю. Темата не е далечна на израелския писател, който от малък живее в среда на идеологически крайности, а отговорите, ко [...]

    5. pages 88-99:"I have never once in my life seen a fanatic with a sense of humor, nor have I ever seen a person with a sense of humor become a fanatic, unless he or she has lost that sense of humor. Fanatics are often sarcastic. Some of them have a very pointed sense of sarcasm, but no humor. Humor contains the ability to laugh at ourselves. Humor is relativism, humor is the ability to see yourself as others may see you, humor is the capacity to realize that no matter how righteous you are and how [...]

    6. A nice lady in Knoxville, Tennessee, attended one of my talks in the States this October. During lunch break, she sat next to me, started searching inside her bag and picked up a tiny book. “I’m enjoying this very much,” she said. “How I wish and pray his ideas will come to pass!” One month later the book was sent to me by mail, and I found out the lady’s name was Julie.This was looking good: 1) Someone got me a book (always a delightful gesture) 2) “How to Cure a Fanatic”: Great [...]

    7. Amos Oz je poznati izraelski Nobelovac, a jedino što sam njegovo do sada pročitala (i dopalo mi se) je „Iznenada u dubini šume“. Ova knjiga je u stvari sastavljena od tri njegova govora koje je održao 2002 godine u Nemačkoj. Na kraju je pridodan i post skriptum napisan 2003 povodom Ženevskog sporazuma. U suštini, u pozadini svega je njegova borba za mir i rešavanje bliskoistočne, tačnije u Izraelu i Palstini i što bi, po njegovom mišljenju, i Židovi i palestinski Arapi, dva suko [...]

    8. I'm not impressed. Mr. Oz correctly asserts that both Israelis and Palestinians have made mistakes and will need to make tough compromises in order to end the conflict. However, Mr. Oz draws a simplistic and unrealistic equivalency between the Israelis and Palestinians. This is the unsound foundation upon which he predicates his arguments. Mr. Oz completely ignores historical and current power imbalances between the State of Israel with its fully developed military machine and nuclear capability [...]

    9. "Как да излекуваме фанатик" е малко книжле от 70-на страници, което включва 2 есета на Амос Оз, както и едно интервю с него в края на книгата. Аз искам да насоча вниманието си върху есето, което е дало и заглавието на книгата. То е по-малко от 25 страници, но всеки ред, всяка дума е д [...]

    10. La migliore recensione che si possa fare di questo libro consta di meno di dieci parole:"Leggetelo per ampliare gli orizzonti della vostra mente."Con affetto, Davide

    11. "Никога не съм вярвал, че светът е разделен на лоши и добри. Знам, че в него има конфликти между доброто и злото, но те никога не саме интересували, нито в литературата, нито в живота. Аз съм провинциален лекар завладян от конфликта между правото и правото. Аз се интересувам не [...]

    12. This was a very disappointing book, on many levels. Oz was only interesting when off topic – he made some good points about globalization for instance, but on the subject of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict he offered little that was new and, in fact, little in the way of a coherent argument at all.Lots of readers have commended this book for its neutrality – I just don’t see it. There are many implied ideas in the first essay, which do not square with the apparent explicit theme of the bo [...]

    13. Trata-se de um livro com alguns ensaios sobre os conflitos que ainda persistem (sem previsão de alta) entre palestinos e israelenses. No livro, o autor tenta convencer que o fanatismo não vale a pena, mas usa alguns argumentos quase pueris, como a importância do senso de humor. Talvez tenha faltado falar um pouco sobre os motivos do conflito, uma contextualização histórica mais crítica. Achei-o um pouco ingênuo, foi uma leitura que não acrescentou muito."cada um de nos e todos nós carr [...]

    14. Interessantissimo saggio. Da leggere se si vuole comprendere meglio la questione israeliana-palestinese.Ciò che ho imparato è che non è una guerra tra buoni e cattivi, tra quelli dalla parte giusta e quelli dalla parte sbagliata. E' una guerra tra i diritti di due popoli che purtroppo si trovano a condividere una terra che entrambi considerano propria di diritto.Mi ripeto, da leggere.

    15. Um livro curtinho, mas fantástico! O autor receita imaginação, leitura e humor contra o fanatismo, e deixa claro que há fanáticos em todos os lugares, de todas as nacionalidades e religiões. Recomendo!

    16. Podržavam Amosov prijedlog da se na univerzitete uvede predmet Komparativni fanatizam Na Balkanu prijeko potreban još od osnovne škole.

    17. Кратко, ясно и точно. Трябваше да си купя 10на копия, които да раздавам на разни хора или да ги удрям с нея (фанатично :) ) по главата :)

    18. Como curar um fanático? Esse é o título original do livro de Amós Oz, que foi traduzido na versão brasileira como Contra o fanatismo. O livro é a compilação de três conferências que o autor proferiu na Universidade de Tübingen, na Alemanha, em 2002: Como curar um fanático?, Israel e Palestina: entre o certo e o certo e O antídoto da imaginação. Nadine Gordimer, prêmio Nobel de Literatura de 1991, afirma no prefácio do livro que Amós Oz é “a voz da sanidade que ultrapassa a c [...]

    19. El libro contiene tres sabrosas conferencias sí contra el fanatismo, pero mejor aún, a favor de la pluralidad de pensamiento y la no tan agradable, pero necesaria, búsqueda de acuerdos en muchas esferas de lo cotidiano, que es público y por lo tanto, político.

    20. Un libro interessantissimo, il primo che ho letto di questo autore. Trattando del tema del fanatismo, l'autore ci aiuta a comprendere come, nel conflitto arabo-israeliano, non esistano buoni e cattivi e come il problema sia un conflitto di diritti, che entrambi i paesi, possiedono sulla terra. Con semplicità, Amos Oz illustra il problema del fanatismo e i mezzi per riconoscerlo e contrastarlo.

    21. Открих Оз късно - едва миналата есен ми попадна "Моят Михаел", след това още 2-3 романа и все още имам достатъчно заглавия за наваксване. Тази малка книжка обаче, за мен е изненада и то определено приятна изненада.Съдържа две есета и едно интервю с израелския автор, в които той [...]

    22. How to Cure a Fanatic is a personal, non-aggressive introduction to an explosive contemporary subject: the confrontation between Israel and Palestine (in alpahabetical ordering). Amos Oz is no stranger to the issues, having been involved for decades in talking, doing, and writing on and about it. In contrast to In the Land of Israel, which presents through interviews the harsh field reality, How to Cure a Fanatic introduces several leads to the author's personal feelings: that fanaticism is not [...]

    23. "No man is an island, said John Donne, but I humbly dare to add: No man or woman is an island, but every one of us is a peninsula, half attached to the mainland, half facing the ocean – one half connected to family and friends and culture and tradition and country and nation and sex and language and many other things, and the other half wanting to be left alone to face the ocean.I think we ought to be allowed to remain peninsulas. Every social and political system that turns each of us into a [...]

    24. This small book had some great thoughts in it. I liked the descriptions of the fanaticism in both Judaism and Islam. I also liked the advice for resolving the Israeli/Palestinian problem (involving a two-state solution).He gave a good description of the complexity of the issue and the importance of painful compromises on both sides. I really liked his description of the land of Israel as a house with two families fighting over ownership and that a solution would be painful and complex (similar t [...]

    25. knigozavar/2013/10/17/how-Амос Оз прави много признания от свое име и от името на еврейския народ, показва грешки в мисленето и действията си; използва себе си като пример за фанатик, за да ни покаже грешките и проблемите произтичащи от това.Да, признавам си, че като дете и аз бях малък ф [...]

    26. knizhenjor/2013/09/fanatik/"И ако сте готови да приемете думите ми не буквално, а, така да се каже, да ги преглътнете с щипка сол, официално бих заявил, че принципно съм открил лек срещу фанатизма. Чувството за хумор е чудесно лекарство. Не съм срещал фанатик с чувство за хумор, нито пък съ [...]

    27. Apesar de curto, um livro poderoso e necessário. A única coisa que me chateou foi a escolha de materiais muito similares para a construção do livro. O Amós Oz se repete bastante - às vezes se "autopirateia" em frases inteiras -, dando a impressão de que eu já li aquilo. Todos os textos sofreram disso e por vezes não trouxeram nada de novo. Também senti que faltou uma introdução mais encorpada e uma contextualização mais bacana. O livro é bem voltado às questões entre judeus e pa [...]

    28. Bottom Line: A practical look at the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.The Israeli novelist/essayist contends the issue is simply one of real estate, & both parties need to put aside contentious stereotypes, religious beliefs, & hatreds, divide the land in painful compromise & move on. The claims of both groups are legitimate. The book is also a thoughtful examination of "fanaticism," the extreme uncompromising end of a spectrum in which anyone who disagrees is a traitor, a space where fe [...]
