The Unknown Distance

The Unknown Distance

From Consciousness to Conscience-Goethe to Camus

The Unknown Distance( )
Publication Date:Oct 2013
Publisher:Harvard University Press
Book Format:Ebook
List Price:USD $65.00
Book Description:

Engelberg argues that Conscience and Consciousness have slowly drifted apart from their once nearly identical meanings: inward knowledge of oneself. This process of separation, he shows, reached a critical point in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the age of "dualisms." He demonstrates from a wide range of examples in literature and philosophy how such a division shaped the attitudes of important writers and thinkers.
