This volume is the acknowledged masterpiece of [the author], who shares with Ortega y Gasset the distinction of being Spain's most influential philosopher. Here, the reader will find the inner contradictions of a modern human being set down with great respect for truth...

[The author] is in the tradition of the great Spanish saints and mystics who devoted their lives to exploring the kingdoms of faith. [This book] is a "direct expression of the strife between the truth thought and the truth felt".

"Masterfully written with the author's strong personality emerging from every page," – New Haven Journal-Courier

"A great Spanish classic," – World Alliance Newsletter

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
Homo sum; nihil humani a me alienum puto, said the Latin playwright. For my part I would rather say: Nullum hominem a me alienum puto: I am a man; no other man do I deem a stranger.
Quotations
The greater part of my work has been to disquiet my neighbor, to stir up the sediment of the hearts, to sow anguish in them, if possible.
The God of the heart, the living God is reached by way of faith and not by way of rational or mathematical conviction, and faith leads us back to Him, when we have left Him to stray after the lifeless God of logic.
