Inhaltsangabe: This is a presentation of 20 excerpts from the writings and speeches of the first President of Czechoslovakia, Thomas G.Masaryk (1850- 1937) who changed the course of the history of the Czechs and Slovaks and influenced developments in Central Europe. The areas of his interest included philosophy, sociology, history, literature, linguistics, ethics, domestic and international politics. He searched for the peace of mind of modern man and reasoned that he should embrace the sciences, philosophy and religion. The selections in this volume follow the twists of his long sometimes dramatic career and show Masaryk as a philosopher who inspired practical work and a politician who encouraged thinking. The editor wrote "A History of Modern Criticism", "Theory of Literature", "Immanuel Kant in England", "Concepts of Criticism", "Essays on Czech Literature", and he edited "The Meaning of Czech History".
