Second Printing, April 1967. "The author is more concerned with the portrayal of the living man than to use him as a peg for a variety of theories. He wanted to see him plain, with his warts and his strangeshuffling walk, so that it would be possible to recognize him if he entered an room. His presence, his voice, his hesitations, his acts of charity, all those things which help us to understand his way of grappling with the problems of his time, which are very largely the problems of our own time -- all these seemed more important than the intellectual systems which generations of psychologists and Soviet scholars have visited upon him in a effort to explain his life and work. Simply put, he defies system." from the Foreword. Price clipped. Small closed tears, 3/4" or less, to top and bottom edge spine dj, else, Pristine, no wear.
