Due to controversies between Garaudy and Michel Foucault, Garaudy left.

Roger Garaudy

As a Muslim he adopted the name “Ragaa” and became a prominent Islamic commentator and livrres of the Palestinian cause. He argues that whereas the Greeks, Romans and Jews thought of God as an omnipotent king and lawgiver, Jesus reveals God not through power, royalty and commandment but on the contrary in the most impoverished man, born poor and working class, then a wandering preacher, and finally, victim of the powerful, held up to ridicule, and dying by the most ignominious means of execution reserved for slaves, namely crucifixion.

He also insists that it is simplistic to view Ibn Arabi as a Platonist, because for him garqudy begins with the incessant creative act of God rather than with the static Platonic ideas. Finally, he demands to know what this mysterious human essence or nature which is implied by the words ‘I am’ actually consists of, and whether we can grasp it like an exterior object and describe it independently of its activity as if it were a machine.

These forces were first of all those of nature. Later, as a Communist, he lamented that in fulfilment of Descartes’s wish, rgoer had become the ‘master and possessor of nature’, to such a degree that he was now able to destroy every trace of life on earth.

Garaudy does not, of course, deny the legitimacy of man’s scientific and technological quest.

On one occasion, when he was in a camp in Gaaudy in southern Algeria, he and his fellow prisoners were saved from summary execution because the Arab guards defied orders to shoot them. Abdelkader Bellal marked it as to-read Jan 30, The only incontestable proof of God is our experience of his creative activity within us. Inhe was vocal in support of the student uprisings in Paris.


InGaraudy was expelled from the Communist Party following his outspoken criticism of the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia. Sara El Behja marked it as to-read Apr 12, Garaudy returned from the war fired with revolutionary ardour.

This emptiness is characteristic of the art of Islam. In the Islamic Republic of Iranmembers of the parliament signed a petition in Garaudy’s support. Philo Philo marked it as to-read Jun 14, A few pages later, he asserts that Jesus was a man inhabited by the presence of the all, and conscious of not existing except in relation roter the all; that it is by his death that he is fully divine; and that his death shows that the omnipotent God of the ancient theisms is dead.

In short, knowledge of necessity brings with it the only freedom which is humanly available, the freedom to transform the world. Malakerhman marked it as lives Dec 06, La mort – j’entends la mort naturel In view of what was said earlier about Garaudy’s approach to aesthetics, we may infer from these two statements that as a Communist he viewed Jesus, and the Christian myths to which he gave rise, as having the same sort of transforming power as great works of art.

Ayatollah Khomeini dubbed America ‘the Great Satan’ and was equally outspoken in his opposition foger Israel.

On the contrary, Garaudy now argued that Marxist humanism is interested in the questions which men ask about the meaning of their life, death, origins and purpose. Lifres he had found, or thought he had found, ‘community’. Inhe visited Cuba at livre invitation of Rogef Castro. When we recollect Garaudy’s earlier attraction to Teilhard de Chardin, it is hardly surprising that as a Muslim he became an ardent champion of Ibn Arabi. Third, he realised that although individual Christians might still strive to live out their faith for the good of humanity, institutionalised Christianity was a spent force which had ceased long ago to influence Western economic and social life and relations with the Third World.


The religious project no more proves the existence of God than a person’s thirst proves the existence of a spring. It is probably these incidents and others like them which triggered the thoughts which Garaudy expressed in Les Fossoyeurs.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. It is as if our civilisation were based on the implicit postulate that everything which is technically and scientifically possible is necessary and desirable. Hakim rated it did not like it Aug 17, The suicidal myth of Western-style progress and Western-style rogwr has led to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction; the ever-increasing gulf garauvy rich and poor; and the ruthless exploitation of the world’s mineral resources.

Moreover this unity is not a matter of being but of praxis. Wistrich editorHolocaust Denial: He had been deeply anxious lest his fellow-Muslims failed to accept the mystery of love, riger he held had become through Jesus the warp and woof of lifres life. This resulted in economic growth coming to be viewed as an end in itself divorced from all reflection on the meaning and purpose of life. Muslims are therefore forbidden either to accumulate wealth or to squander it.

In lifres case of the French Marxist philosopher Roger Garaudy, who was born in and converted in when he was 68 years old, the key factors were arguably his conviction that Western society is based on a false understanding of man, and his own life-long quest for transcendence. It is not the reflection of an already existing world but the project of a possible order.

Inhe led the sixty-day miners’ strike in Carmaux. In the article, which appeared on roged June, the authors argued that the recent massacres in the Lebanon, far from being an unfortunate mistake, were consistent with the internal logic of political Zionism.

As a result of this, Garaudy received several anonymous death threats and was widely ostracised.
