Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0838313183, Library Binding)First written during the darkest days of World War I and then republished with just a new preface at the beginning of World War II, this is an analysis of the basic philosophy underlying the thinking of the German people. Santayana passes from the hints of egoism in Goethe to the "seeds of egotism" in Kant, and from these to the philosophies of Schopenhauer and Nietzsche. This study is basic to any collection in the area of philosophy or history.

As the First World War raged, Santayana cast a suspicious eye on German philosophy. Finding something sinister, hollow, and aggressive amidst its genius, he nevertheless describes for the general reader the ideas of Goethe, Kant, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, and others--and does so with relative objectivity.
