Critic Roger Kimball [6] suggests that Opium is "a seminal book of the twentieth century.

As a voice of moderation in politics, [8] Aron had many disciples on both the political left and right, but he remarked that he personally was "more of a left-wing Aronian than a right-wing one.

Aron wrote extensively on a wide range of other topics. Citing the breadth and quality of Aron's writings, historian James R.

The usefulness of such forces would be made necessary by what he called a "nuclear taboo.

The Companion to Raymond Aron pp Cite as. I t all started with Germany. Without having experienced German politics and philosophy during the first three years of the s, Raymond Aron would have hardly become the thinker we know today. All this was important, of course. Studying German philosophy and sociology helped Aron to overcome what he regarded as the shortcomings of the academic education he received in his native France.
