Although the Russian-born Shestov is little identified within the Anglophone international this present day, his writings encouraged many twentieth-century eu thinkers, resembling 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 point of view. This new, annotated variation of Bernard Martin’s vintage translation provides references to the pointed out 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 notion that formed the evolution of continental philosophy and ecu literature within the 20th century.
