lyn32373

Berlin, W. de Gruyter & Co., 1960. 8vo. Orig. full cloth in orig. dust jacket. In fine condition. VII,336 pp. ¶ Second augmented edition.
Werner Jaeger (1888-1961) is perhaps best known for his work 'Paideia' (which is Greek for 'education'/'Bildung'), an extensive consideration of both the earliest practices and later philosophical reflections on the cultural nature of education in Ancient Greece, which he hoped would restore a decadent early 20th century Europe to the values of its Hellenic origins. In 'Humanistische Reden und Vorträge' one finds a collection of essays, mostly based on lectures, in both German and English, which gives a priviledged insight into the development of one of the major exponents for an educated humanism as a counterpart to the totalitarianism and other terrors of our century. The essays bears titles such as 'Der Humanismus als Tradition und Erlebnis', 'Antike und Humanismus', 'Stat und Kultur' and 'Humanism and Theology'.
