THE DEVIL'S SHARE by Denis de Rougemont


Email this review


The considerable following which M. de Rougemont has in America will welcome this most recent of his works. These are essays expressive of the author's moral philosophy which emerges from his original concept of man's indomitable will to freedom. A profound truth, a great hope for a better world, is here presented -- that not by mass movements nor by group conferences, but by every man living a more responsible life shall the Devil be defeated. Each one of us, says M. de Rougemont, can personally participate in total victory by becoming, each in himself, an ""imperceptible obstacle to evil"". The translation from M. de Rougemont's singularly limpid French is beautifully done by Haakon Chevalier.
