9780061301230: Religion from Tolstoy to Camus (Torchbooks)

Walter Kaufmann devoted his life to exploring the religious implications of literary and philosophical texts. Deeply skeptical about the human and moral bene?ts of modern secularism, he also criticized the quest for certainty pursued through dogma. Kaufmann saw a risk of loss of authenticity in what he described as unjusti?ed retreats into the past. This is a compilation of signi?cant texts on religious thought that he selected and introduced.
