By Lev Shestov,Ramona Fotiade,Bernard Martin
For greater than thousand years, philosophers and theologians have wrestled with the irreconcilable competition among Greek rationality (Athens) and biblical revelation (Jerusalem). In Athens and Jersusalem, Lev Shestov?—?an suggestion for the French existentialists and the main interlocutor of Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger, and Martin Buber through the interwar years?—?makes the gripping disagreement among those symbolic poles of historical knowledge his philosophical testomony, an argumentative and stylistic journey de force.
Although the Russian-born Shestov is little identified within the Anglophone international this present day, his writings motivated many twentieth-century eu thinkers, comparable to Albert Camus, D. H. Lawrence, Thomas Mann, Czeslaw Milosz, and Joseph Brodsky. Athens and Jerusalem is Shestov’s ultimate, groundbreaking paintings at the philosophy of faith from an existential viewpoint. This new, annotated version of Bernard Martin’s vintage translation provides references to the stated works in addition to glosses of passages from the unique Greek, Latin, German, and French. Athens and Jerusalem is Shestov at his so much profound and such a lot eloquent and is the clearest expression of his proposal that formed the evolution of continental philosophy and ecu literature within the 20th century.
