Athens and Jerusalem by Lev Shestov( Book )

27 editions published between 1951 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than two thousand years, philosophers and theologians have wrestled with the irreconcilable opposition between Greek rationality (Athens) and biblical revelation (Jerusalem). In Athens and Jersusalem, Lev Shestov -- an inspiration for the French existentialists and the foremost interlocutor of Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger, and Martin Buber during the interwar years -- makes the gripping confrontation between these symbolic poles of ancient wisdom his philosophical testament, an argumentative and stylistic tour de force. Although the Russian-born Shestov is little known in the Anglophone world today, his writings influenced many twentieth-century European thinkers, such as Albert Camus, D.H. Lawrence, Thomas Mann, Czesław Miłosz, and Joseph Brodsky. Athens and Jerusalem is Shestov's final, groundbreaking work on the philosophy of religion from an existential perspective. This new, annotated edition of Bernard Martin's classic translation adds references to the cited works as well as glosses of passages from the original Greek, Latin, German, and French. Athens and Jerusalem is Shestov at his most profound and most eloquent and is the clearest expression of his thought that shaped the evolution of continental philosophy and European literature in the twentieth century."--

"Leon Shestov was a Russian-Jewish intellectual of the Silver Age of Russian culture who believed in the irrational, the divine, the overwhelming insight. As a philosopher, he stood firmly against the encroachment of rationalism and science. As a literary critic, he was unique in his quest for the experience behind artistic creation. In this book Shestov offers brilliant, witty insights into Chekhov, Dostoevski, Ibsen, Tolstoi, Hegel, Kant, Nietzsche, and many other writers and philosophers
