Crisis and the Apocalypse of Man
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis volume confronts the disintegration of traditional sources of meaning and the correlative attempts to generate new sources from within the self. Voegelin allows the reader to contemplate the crisis in its starkest terms - as the apocalypse of man that seeks to replace the apocalypse of God.
