The writings of twenty men whose greatness has come to prominence in our time have been collected, excerpted and presented to form an anthology of contemporary philosophies and guideposts for our modern dilemmas. Schweitzer's Re for Life, Sartre's Out of Being and Nothingness. J.B.S. Haldane on human evolution, Oppenheimer on prospects in the arts and sciences- these are the home grounds of the ideas and of the stimuli to our own thinkings. Among the others represented are Russell, Huxley, Trevelyan, Jung, Frank Lloyd Wright, Sorokin, Karl Jaspers, Werner Heisenberg, Silone, Neiburg, Maritain. A broad anthology which offers serious readers a look at the foundations of many contemporary philosophies, with many points of reference for comparison.
