Lessons in Exile won the 2007 Siglo XXI International Essay Prize. The work is unique in its outlook on exile and offers remarkable insights into its subject. The book discusses with depth and exactness the phenomenon of exile from the combined perspectives of philosophy, morality, politics, literature, anthropology, and history. After an historical survey and the use of testimonies and literary materials, the book offers a comprehensive discussion of exile and subjectivity, as well as the many moral and political implications of this notion. It concludes by drawing many thought-provoking connections between exile and the way we assume our lives.
