CONFESSIONS OF AN ORIGINAL SINNER - hardcover

1990, ISBN: 9780899199566

ID: 153938517

New York: Ticknor & Fields. Hardcover. 1990-04-30. Good. Good shape. Tight binding. Pages clean. Jacket in good shape except one sma ll hole. Some underlining in early chapters. In Confessions of an Original Sinner, Hungarian-born historian and writer J ohn Lukacs describes the history of his convictions and beliefs. Born in 19 24, Lukacs describes his journey from the Hungary of the 1930s and the rava ges of Budapest in World War II to his discovery of America and forays into the intellectual life of New York City, and finally, his settling in Phila delphia. The "passing of the Modern Age" thematically unites Lukacs's nine chapters, which address many of the major currents of our period, including fascism, communism, democracy, anti-Semitism, and Christianity. Written between 1983 and 1988, Confessions offers reflective, thought-provoking observations from a "man who knows that he is living during the end of an age." Like many immigrant intellectuals, Lukacs maintains a critical skepticism toward his adopted country and a distanced objectivity toward his homeland. As a result, his writings often illustrate the intersection--and frequent collision--of his humanistic European background with the American spirit of independence: "I could not believe that the future of Western civilization was California." Lukacs seamlessly weaves his complex thoughts into an entertaining, provocative narrative. For example, the chapter on "Dwelling" guides the reader from renovating a suburban home to the absurdity of urban sprawl, skepticism about the democratic process, involvement in local politics, the death of a loved one, and disillusion with a decaying social order. With reflections ., Ticknor & Fields, 1990-04-30
