1. Reading Iran In 2006 Warner Brothers released the film version of Frank Miller’s highly stylized graphic novel of the Spartan defence at Thermopylae, titled the ‘300’. Like all good storytellers Miller was less interested in factual accuracy than with the message he sought to convey, and there was little room for nuance. The protagonists were clear, though there was an added twist to the standard tale of freeborn Spartans heroically defending the ‘Western’ civilization against the Persian hordes determined to enslave it. In this case it was not sufficient for the Persians to be despotic and ‘un-free’, they also

5. From darkness to light Live performance of ritual constitutes the centrepiece of activities in freemasonry and is one of the defining features that distinguish it from the majority of other associations. The rituals of freemasonry developed during the 18th and 19th centuries and have since remained unchanged in their general design. Masonic rituals take place inside (and partly outside) the lodge according to a more or less predefined script (the ritual text) as a dramatizing performance in ritual and real time—much like a musical score and a concert, or a play and its performance. Rituals fulfil three major functions:

5. Enlightened illusions Dialectic of Enlightenment was perhaps the first great critical encounter with modernity undertaken from the Left. It first appeared in a private printing for the Institute with the title Philosophical Fragments in 1944. When it was finally published with Querido Verlag in 1947, however, the original title had been turned into the subtitle. The focus had become more precise. Initially that didn’t help matters: it sold only about two thousand copies. Today, however, Dialectic of Enlightenment is recognized as a landmark of modern philosophy and, arguably, the signature work of critical theory.
