“One must respect the profundity of [Jaspers’s] approach to the problem and his freedom from all evasions.” (―Nation)
About the Author
Karl Jasper (1883-1969) took his degree in medicine but soon became interested in psychiatry. He is the author of a standard work of psychopathology, as well as special studies on Strindberg, Van Gogh, and Nietzsche. After World War I he became Professor of Philosophy at Heidelberg, where he achieved fame as a brilliant teacher and an early exponent of existentialism. He Was among the first to acquaint German readers with the works of Kierkegaard. Jasper had to resign from his post in 1935. From the total isolation into which the Hitler regiem forced him, Jasper returned in 1945 to a position of central intellectual leadership of the younger liberal elements of Germany. In his First Lecture in 1945, he forcefully reminded his audience of the fate of the German Jews. Jaspers's unblemished record as an anti-Nazi as well as his sentient mind, made him a rallying point for those of his compatriots who wished to reconstruct a free and democratic Germany.

psyche of the first half of the 20th c. I am a cultural historian, specializing, for nearly 50 yrs, in the art/culture of Nazi Germany.
There are so many 1000's of books on every aspect of that era in Germany (& probably 1000's more to be written) that of course
no-one can possibly read them all. But the really oustanding works on the subject deserve a read by anyone really devoted to
the subject, & I wanted to add Jaspers' contribution. It is not just well-written, but, considering the post-war publication date, a book
that endeavors to deal with German participation (physically or psychologically) in the "Third Reich" quite objectively--not an easy
task back then. Recommended.
Of course I have a love of philosophy - purely recreational reading - and this is one of the best books I've found. I must confess too that I have a fascination with how things in a democratic society could have possibly gone so sideways.
If you share those interests, this is money well spent!
