Book Description Hutchinson & Co. , London [etc.], 1951. Hardcover. 1st edition. xiv, 15-228 p.; 23.5 cm. From the jacket flaps: `The present work undertakes to survey the attitude of men to Time's enigma from the prehistoric era, through the great cultures of the Ancient Near East, to the formation of the traditional Western view of life. As a result of this survey three distinctive patterns of reaction emerge; a primitive belief that Time's effacing stream can be controlled by ritual magic; a philosophy of carpe diem; a faith that Time is the field in which God's providence is revealed. The final chapter of the book is devoted to estimating the effect of the virtual abandonment of the Christian interpretation of History in the modern world due to the advance of natural science and historical studies. The book ends with an analysis of the conditions which must be fulfilled, if an effective Weltanschauung is to be built up again in the Western world.' VG orig. red cloth in lt. edgeworn dj.
