This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a non-philosophical work by a 20th-century philosopher-activist:
"Idealism is the offspring of suffering and hope, and therefore reaches its maximum when a period of misfortune is nearing its visible termination."
The winner receives a £25 Blackwell's voucher and the closing date is April 23.

The winner of last week's competition, who correctly identified George Orwell's Burmese Days , is Martina Doherty of Coleraine, Co. Derry.
