Pymble, New South Wales: Fourth Estate, 2003. 700 g; XIV, 322 pages, includes notes on sources, and a central eight page photographic spread in black-and-white. Colour illustrated dust jacket. The book shows no signs of damage. Peter Singer ethicist and philosopher, discovered some of his grandfather's letters in a relative's apartment in Melbourne. Reading them, he made startling discoveries about his grandparents early romantic attachments, the basis on which they decide to marry, their professional aspirations and their differing views of Jews. Starting from an essay that Oppenheimer co-wrote with Freud, the which was suppressed because of a bitter split within the Wednesday Group, Singer explores the difficulties of free enquiry in the circles of both Freud and Adler. As you set out to find out more about the life of a man he never knew, Singer was transported back to the Vienna of his grandfather, where was the hub of European culture and new ideas, a culture that was both intensely Jewish and distinctly secular. Examining this culture, and its fate, forces Singer to confront one of the foundations of his own thought: how much can we rely on human reason?". First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. Illus. by Photographic. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Biography.
