Summary

Summary

In an extended inquiry into the nature of the modern age, as well as a historical, philosophical, and theological analysis of modernity's prospects in the next millennium, Guardini argues that human beings are responsible moral agents, possessed of free will and answerable to God and their fellow man.

Library Journal Review

Guardini here contemplates the human condition in the wake of two world wars and numerous other horrors and offers his thoughts in two of his best essays: "The End of The Modern World: A Search for Orientation" and "Power and Responsibility: A Course of Action for The New Age." Pretty heavy stuff, this is more for academic libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
