Format: Paperback
Dixon delivered the Gifford lectures (historically one of the world's best) in 1935-7 just as WWII was approaching and only 20 years after "The war to end all wars" that so traumatized western civilization. Dixon addressed this self-destructive impulse, and many other important themes as he tries to understand what a human being is and does and why (or why not). His is a far-reaching work of philosophy from a man of letters' perspective (he was an English Literature professor) who is keenly sensitive, of a noble mind, extraordinarily erudite and unusually wise to boot.He is also a supreme artist with a pen--and I mean supreme artist. Few works in English can rival this work for beauty and perhaps none surpass it. Edify yourself with its wisdom, and enjoy it for its transcendent beauty. It's a little piece of heaven fallen to earth--a gift of celestial beauty.

0ne of the top ten books in the last 100 years. As a prose stylist, Dixon is the equal of William James. Shakespeare on every page.. Timeless philosophical insights into the way the world works. Also good in this genre is "The Hearts of Men" by Harold Fielding
