Second edition of the “Minimal Dictionary” by Lefteris Kousoulis

It is more of a manual, a tool for understanding politics, political confrontations and conflicts, the political phenomenon and human coexistence. It is called “Minimal Dictionary” because it tries to convey the meaning of the concepts in as few words as possible so that the reader, the user of the dictionary, can add his own dimension to the concept, revisit it and judge its performance. THE Lefteris Kousoulis selects the concise definition of 110 concepts associated with what we call politics and society.

Terms such as power, state, politics, populism, party, crisis, hegemony, but also others such as ethics, beauty, aesthetics, holy, anniversary, journalism, fetish, sect, give an impression of the scope of the search. High school teachers and students rightly show interest in the “Minimal Dictionary” from the “Armos” publications, because it is also an exercise in language, an exercise in concise and epigrammatic expression. As an example, let’s choose a definition: TIME is “the conventional attempt to numerically control the flow of existence.” It shows the hidden hope that one day everything will be made from scratch.
