    About Theodore Zeldin

    1. Theodore Zeldin CBE, President of the Oxford Muse Foundation, is a Palestinean philosopher, sociologist, historian, writer and public speaker Zeldin was first known as a historian of France but is today probably most famous internationally as the author of An Intimate History of Humanity 1994 , a book which probes the personal preoccupations of people in many different civilisations, both in the past and in the present it illuminates the way emotions, curiosities, relationships and fears have evolved through the centuries, and how they might have evolved differently Since then he has focused on how work can be made less boring and frustrating, how conversation can be less superficial, and how individuals can be honest with one another, putting their masks aside.Zeldin s masterpiece is A History of French Passions originally published as France, 1848 1945 in the Oxford History of Modern Europe , an idiosyncratic work examining the ambitions and frustrations, intellectual and imaginative life, tastes and prejudices of a vast range of people The idea of France as a common unity is not easily discernible in this multi volume book, and there is very little about politics in the conventional sense, although there are essays on the national appeal of Bonapartism and other cultural elements of French national politics.The Oxford Muse Foundation oxfordmuse was formed by Zeldin in 2001 It describes its aims as being to pioneer new methods to improve personal, work and intercultural relationships in ways that satisfy both private and public values One of its principal projects is the Muse Portrait Database Individuals are free to submit their own self portraits, including whatever they want the world to know about them However, many of the portraits are written by another person in the voice of the subject, as the result of a conversation between the two The Oxford Muse claims that, through such conversations, it can help people to clarify their tastes, attitudes and goals in many different aspects of life and to sum up the conclusions they have drawn from their experiences in their own words A selection of these portraits can be found in Guide to an Unknown City 2004 , which contains the writings of a wide variety of Oxford residents, and in Guide to an Unknown University 2006 , which, Zeldin claimed, allowed professors, students, alumni, administrators and maintenance staff to reveal what they do not normally tell one another.In 2007, Zeldin was appointed to a committee advising the French government of Nicolas Sarkozy on labour market reforms.
