TOWARD RELIGION by Ludwig Lewisohn


Email this review


A collection of essays, dealing with Lewisohn's personal approach to moot questions today, -- religion, sex, scientific progress, the arts, communism (indirectly, to be sure), and so on. Uneven in appeal: Is Love Enough? and The Bourgecis Takes His Stand are of wide general interest; the others, perhaps keyed to a more scholarly type of reader with a philosophical bias. Conservative viewpoint, on the whole. Can it be that already Mr. Lewisohn ""dates""? Whatever one's viewpoint on the subjects under discussion, his method of presentation is invariably worth thoughtful attention and appreciative interest. Not for the wide public of his Expression in America, however.
