Summary
Four brilliant essays examine Kierkegaard, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky and Buber. Each is seen in a new perspective (the appreciation of Tolstoy, for example, is eye-opening). One chapter contrasts Nietzsche with the leading existentialists, and another explores the reception of existentialism in the United States. Throughout, the author's thrust is critical and constructive and never merely expository. [Back cover]
