World Revolution and the Future of the West

Nature volume 149, page 486 (02 May 1942) | Download Citation



DR. FRIEDMANN, from an originally German and juristic standard, forecasts the fashion in which the present horrible chaos came upon us, and how the direct values should be secured. He is rightly concerned primarily and mainly with Western civilization. The globe has been humanized from the West, the Greco-Romans leaving their human structure to survive the revolutions which have led us to the present. Humanity, imperfectly indeed, passed the consolidatory Roman stage crowned by the glory of Greece. Then a further socializing covers the same ground in Christianity. Without the survival of these three-law, reason, beauty- humanity would not have come to the birth: laid as they have been in fresh revolutions to the present.
