Migration and Intolerance, from Umberto Eco – Record Publishing Group, 2020
It's another brilliant reflection by Umberto Eco against prejudice and discrimination. Discussions about the great migratory flows that we have seen recently and the intolerant stance of many towards migrants have forced the world, in particular the countries of Europe, confronting its own history and values. The four essays that make up this work invite the reader to think about these themes, today even more current and urgent than at the time when the texts were written.
On these pages, Eco explains the differences between the phenomena of “migration” and “immigration”, pointing out its characteristics and consequences, in addition to explaining the nuances between fundamentalism, fundamentalism, racism and intolerance, dealing with its dangers in the contemporary world. The author maintains that “mutual understanding between different cultures does not mean assessing what the other must renounce in order to become equal, but understand each other what separates us and accept this diversity”. And it presents arguments to demonstrate that “eliminating racism does not mean demonstrating and convincing yourself that Others are no different from us, but understand and accept them in their diversity”.
Migration and intolerance is part of a collection of essays essential to see the other with new eyes, and a concise manual, visionary and unique to understand the political and social scene of this delicate moment when misunderstandings and backward ideas seem to thrive. www.record.com.br
