Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Philosopher Gabriel Marcel has been described as a Christian existentialist, reflective empiricist, and a "neo-Socratic." This volume contains 13 essays (originally published in France in 1940) on such topics as faith, fidelity, belief, incarnate being, and religious tolerance. Translator Rosthal's (philosophy, U. of North Carolina, Greensboro) introduction discusses Marcel's life, compares his thought with that of other philosophers, and examines the major themes in his writing.
