November 8, 1952, Toronto. "Innis maintained, added to, and corrected, in the last seven years of his life, asingle system of cross-referenced notes, which came to be called the Idea File. Before his death in 1952 he collected these notes into a single numbered collation. In this edition the material has been arranged in chronological order to give a sense of the development of Innis's ideas and concerns.Innis's interests were many and varied, and this collection of some 1500 n otes covers an encyclopedic range of topics. The different lines of Innis'sinvestigations converge, however, in his interest in basic political and c ultural issues and in his fundamental concern for the preservation of individual freedom and creativity. At heart Innis was a moralist whose hatred ofoppresive social institutions led him to examine them from many angles. it is a fascinationg odyssey. Every reader will be refreshed and enriched by sharing Innis's life-long intellectual adventure." - from the introductory reamble. Very good. 30.00
