Paul Valéry

Illusions of Civilization


William Kluback

Paul Valéry: Illusions of Civilization opens a vast discussion of the meaning of civilization, in particular, Western civilization. It causes us to face the problems of survival, meaning, and ends. This discussion with Valéry is unique - never before has such an encounter taken place. The reader is overwhelmed and challenged. The problems are presented with amazing clarity and depth.
