Walter Kaufmann : Philosopher, Humanist, Heretic, Paperback / softback Book

Walter Kaufmann : Philosopher, Humanist, Heretic Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The first complete account of the ideas and writings of a major figure in twentieth-century intellectual lifeWalter Kaufmann (1921-1980) was a charismatic philosopher, critic, translator, and poet who fled Nazi Germany at the age of eighteen, emigrating alone to the United States.

He single-handedly rehabilitated Nietzsche's reputation after World War II and was enormously influential in introducing postwar American readers to existentialism.

Stanley Corngold provides the first in-depth study of Kaufmann's thought, showing how he speaks to many issues that concern us today.

Kaufmann was astonishingly prolific until his untimely death at age fifty-nine, writing some dozen major books, all marked by breathtaking erudition and a provocative essayistic style.

Corngold introduces Kaufmann to a new generation of readers, vividly portraying the intellectual life of one of the twentieth century's most engaging and neglected thinkers.
