Protest Against Closing Down the Lukács Archiv in Budapest

As we spent some time in Budapest years ago, we know that might be important for few of our friends there to promote this petition. Therefore we are not about post anything for upcoming events etc but rather a political event which is going to happen soon. The semi-fascist government of Hungary has decided to shut George Lukács Archive down. If you find it as much terrifying as we do. Have a look bellow..

“Petition against the Hungarian Academy of Sciences’ decision to close down the Görgy Lukács Archives in Budapest:

“Lukács was one the significant philosophers of the 20th century, an author of modernity outstanding not only in philosophy but also in the fields of political mindedness, theory of literature, sociology and ethics An author of international renown, Lukács represented one of the intellectual peaks in Hungary’s history of civilisation, his works constitute a part of the treasures of humankind. For decades, the Lukács Archives has facilitated academic and non-academic circles to have access to the documents related to the philosopher’s life and professional achievements. As it is located in the philosopher’s home of his late years, it has also served as a memorial place devoted to a decisive personality of our era. Based on the above, we call on the authorities in charge to re-consider their decision, which took the international community of science and art by consternation and sorrow.””
