Summary
"Our subject is a fourfold one - a book and its meaning; a man and his ideas; a culture and its preoccupations; a society and its problems. The society is Habsburg Vienna during the last twenty-five or thirty years of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The culture is, or appears to be, our own twentieth-century culture in its infancy."--The back cover
