In this extended prose poem-a text that reads as much as a work of art as important scholarship-Kurt H. Wolff has created a work of phenomenology that goes far beyond the typical methods of empirical social science to embrace field work as an extraordinary openness to being. Including personal letters to Wolff from Hannah Arendt and Hermann Bloch, the book portrays a fertile mind's reckoning with pre-phenomenal being in a way that dances between the realms of intellectual consideration and the surrender of will to the intoxication of lived experience.
The late Kurt H. Wolff was Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Brandeis University. A prolific author of many books and essays, he was perhaps best known as a translator of the work of Georg Simmel and Karl Mannheim.
