Vladimir Jankélévitch: The Time of Forgiveness traces the reflections of the French philosopher and musicologist Vladimir Jankelevitch on the conditions and temporality of forgiveness in relation to creation, history, and memory. The author demonstrates the influence of Jewish and Christian thought on Jankelevitch’s philosophy and compares his ideas about the gift character of forgiveness, the role of retributive emotions in conceptions of justice, and the limits of reason with those of Aristotle, Butler, Kant, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Scheler, Arendt, Derrida, Levinas, and Ricoeur. The Shoah was the pivotal historical event in Jankelevitch’s life. As this book shows, Jankelevitch’s question “Is forgiveness possible as a response to evil?” remains a potent philosophical conundrum today. Paradoxically, for Jankelevitch, evil is both the impetus and the obstacle to forgiveness.

An intrepid reporter boards the Lusitania in a “vivid . . . ripping good” spy thriller from the Pulitzer Prize–winning author (The Wall Street Journal). It’s 1915, World War I is in full swing, and foreign correspondent Christopher “Kit” Marlowe Cobb is tasked with following a German intellectual and possible secret service agent traveling on the British ocean liner Lusitania. But Cobb is soon distracted from his mission by the sultry Selene Bourgani, a world-renowned silent film star who also appears to be working with German Intelligence. The more Cobb thinks he knows her, the less he really does. The secrets Selene harbors have the potential to set the whole international conflict further aflame—and they’re ignited by a German U-boat attack off the Irish coast. From the perilous waters of the Atlantic, Cobb tails Selene first into London’s darkest alleyways, then on to the powder keg that is Istanbul. Across the war-torn stages of Europe and the Middle East, Cobb must venture deep behind enemy lines, knowing full well he may not return. The second book in Robert Olen Butler’s Christopher Marlowe Cobb series, The Star of Istanbul “has it all: history galore, exotic foreign settings, a world-weary yet engaging protagonist, villains in abundance and a romance worthy of Bogart and Bergman” (BookPage). “[An] outstanding work of historical fiction.” —Huntington News “Butler . . . holds the reader transfixed, like a kid at a Saturday matinee.” —Booklist, starred review “An exciting thriller with plenty of action, romance, and danger . . . [a] fast-paced journey through a world at war.” —Library Journal
