About This Item

New York. 1970. May 1970. Harper & Row. 1st American Edition. Very Good in Price-Clipped Dustjacket. 173 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Guy Fleming. FROM THE PUBLISHER - THE BRIDGE OF CRITICISM is a serious and yet playful attempt to sum up some of the main ideas of the Enlightenment and its effect on the modern world. The form is a dialogue between Voltaire (for the defense) and Erasmus (for the prosecution) moderated by Lucian. Discussed are the meaning of history, the concepts of happiness, reason and the imagination, and existentialism. Although this little book is full of learning, its almost Shavian play of ideas turns it into an intellectual scherzo that will both entertain and instruct the reader. inventory #4088
