Editorial Reviews


“A great panorama of illuminating wisdom.”

—D. C. Somervell, International Affairs

“With characteristic aloofness, Santayana has again combined his mastery of words, his acuteness of expression and his sharp, though hardly contemporary, insight into man’s relationship with man to form a truly remarkable treatise on politics in general, and the application of reason to circumstance in particular. . . . There are several compelling reasons, however, why one should read Dominations and Powers. It is tremendous in its scope, vast in its searching, and suggestive in its expression; ever-encouraging the reader to seek deeper and deeper into the realm of thought. It is the kind of writing that disturbs habits of thought and poses the type of questions which must seek fresh and live answers. And, whether it is agreed with or not, it is none the less stimulating.”

—Irvin C. Ryder, Military Affairs

About the Author

George Santayana (1863-1952) was a professor of philosophy at Harvard University. Expressing a theme that remained a lifelong characteristic, he explains why he gave up “academic lumber” and went into retirement. The pursuit of pure philosophy became his revolt against intellectual dissolution and anarchy. His writings were substantial, including a five-volume work, The Life of Reason, and a four-volume work,Realms of Being.
