The Fundamental Concepts of Modern Philosophic Thought (Geschichte und Kritik der Grundbegriffe der Gegenwart)

Rudolf Eucken, the second German to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1908, was born in the town of Aurich, in East Frisia - a Province to the East of Germany. He loved music, studied philosophy and researched the language of Aristotle. I like and recommend his "Fundamental Ideas Of The Present Day". Through this Philosophical work, Eucken had raised the flag of revolution against the existing materialistic thoughts. Eucken severely criticized many a thinker of the day who believed in MATERIALISM. Through this book, Eucken also expressed his views on History as well as Criticism.
