Inhaltsangabe: In this fourth volume of a projected six, Huxley registers his deep misgivings about the course of history in the late 1930s as the world moved toward a second global war. Many of his essays reflect his continuing interest in the conventions of popular culture as well as the philosophy of science and history, particularly as they inform developments in art and politics. But his larger concerns oscillate between empirical science and the particulars of social history, on the one hand, and his need for a grounding of absolute truth that would transcend both. His critique of politics and the prevailing ideologies of fascism and capitalism overlaps with his attempt to locate a foundational truth in a world of change and diversity. He embraced a form of political pacifism that intersected with an increasing attraction to religious quietism and mysticism. And he made a sustained effort to reconcile mystical experience with contemporary theories of physics and the philosophy of science. At their best, Huxley's essays stand among the finest examples of the genre in modern literature. "A remarkable publishing event...beautifully produced and authoritatively edited."?Jeffrey Hart.

Buchbeschreibung Ivan R. Dee. 1 Cloth(s), 2001. hard. Buchzustand: New. Although perhaps best known for his novel Brave New World, Aldous Huxley was nonetheless very much at home in the essay form. Ranging from journalism to critical reviews to literary, political, and philosophical reflections, Huxley's essays are often considered among the 20th century's best. Penned at a time when world affairs were reaching a crisis, many of this pacifist thinker's texts—including "Ethics" and "The Planned Society"—are meditations on the nature of evil and whether war is avoidable. Here too are travelogues ("In a Tunisian Oasis"), literary studies ("D.H. Lawrence"), and penetrating social analysis ("The Man Without a Job"). 446. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 62335
