Summary
  • "A Centaur in Auschwitz sheds new light on Primo Levi's rational, demythologizing approach to suffering and survival. Massimo Giuliani presents a new means to understand Levi's thought, employing the neologism of salvaction - conveying "salvation" through one's own "action."
  • The author has developed a "star of salvaction"--A diagram in the shape of a Star of David, in which each of the six points leads to a strategy Levi learned for seeking meaning, and thereby salvation, in the misery of Auschwitz. With its concise overview of Levi's expression and development as a writer, A Centaur in Auschwitz reveals Primo Levi for what he was - scientist, intellectual, Jew, and dedicated seeker of the roots of human dignity."--Jacket
