A Short History of My Philosophy is an autobiographic account of Agnes Heller's intellectual and academic career. While the narration mainly traces the development of ideas, we also learn how they occurred in the context of challenging life circumstances. Agnes Heller presents the life of her ideas is four stages: the first, "years of apprenticeship," details both the pre- and post-Hungarian revolution period during which she studied under Gyorgy Lukacs; the second, "years of dialogue," describes the relationships of the "Budapest school" in terms of their shared work and contributions; the third, "years of building and intervention," gives insight into important works written while living in Australia, along with Agnes Heller's political engagements during this period; and finally, the fourth, "years of wandering," describes the various projects Agnes Heller has undertaken as a world-traveler at conferences since the departure of her late husband, Ferenc Feher.
