Abstract:

"As a scholar, mystic, and Christian, the author examines modern life in terms of history, war, humanism, culture, and Christianity. He argues that only a mobilization of the spirit can be set up against modern collective insanity and demoniac possession, against modern polydemonism and idolatry. Social organization alone is powerless to struggle against this chaotic decay of the world and of man. The world threatens to become an organized and technicized chaos unless a new Christian piety can be revealed, in which the personal and the superpersonal, the individual personality and communal relationships are accessible to one another and initiate a new and final renaissance of the world"--Book.
