Social Philosophies in an Age of Crisis
* Book: SOROKIN, PITIRIM A. Social Philosophies of an Age of Crisis. Pp. xi, 345. Boston: The Beacon Press, 1950
"Aphilosopher looks at other philosophers, modern thinkers who have contributed their hows and whys of a war-torn civilization, and -- if any -- the roads to salvation. In capsule form he summarizes the basic philosophies of those named above and others. He analyzes the points at which they agree or disagree. In conclusion, he finds them as creative as any other group of social and humanistic scholars of our age. Rigorous but rewarding reading, this should provide a fine introduction to the study of the works of the philosophers under dissection."
