Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book is for anyone interested in ideas and their history. Despite its comprehensiveness, it is not primarily a survey or synthesis but rather an interpretation of modern intellectual history. Its specific purpose is to trace the development of one intriguing theme- perhaps the major theme- in modern man's way of thinking about himself and his universe. That theme is the sense of becoming rather than being.
