The German Genius: Europe's Third Renaissance, the Second Scientific Revolution, and the Twentieth Century

封面
Harper Collins, 2010年6月22日 - 992 頁
The German Genius is a virtuoso cultural history of German ideas and influence, from 1750 to the present day, by acclaimed historian Peter Watson (Making of the Modern Mind, Ideas). From Bach, Goethe, and Schopenhauer to Nietzsche, Freud, and Einstein, from the arts and humanities to science and philosophy, The German Genius is a lively and accessible review of over 250 years of German intellectual history. In the process, it explains the devastating effects of World War II, which transformed a vibrant and brilliantly artistic culture into a vehicle of warfare and destruction, and it shows how the German culture advanced in the war’s aftermath.

Firehose delivery of German Thought . Comprehensive, but just a handful of sentences for each of the hundreds of personalities, discoveries and philosophies. Breathless and unpleasant journey. Nothing at all like his "Age of Nothing" 閱讀評論全文
