FREUD, GOETHE AND WAGNER

The three lectures delivered by Mann at the New School for Social Research last winter. Not a repetition of previous published material on the same subjects... The chapter on Freud and the Future is a recognition of his life work as the corner-stone of a new structure which will be the future dwelling of a wiser and freer humanity, freed from fear and hate and ripe for peace... Mann looks upon Goethe as a great educator, who feeling his deep responsibility toward mankind tried to uplift humanity through beauty, self-discipline and self-control, along with moral courage. In Wagner's life, he stresses the eternal struggle between the musical genius and physical weakling, and reveals his own understanding of both. Obvious market.
