Anti-Metaphysical Reasoning and Sociological Approach: Roads from Nationalism to Regionalism in the 19th-20th Century Hungarian Intellectual Tradition [Book Review]

Studies in East European Thought 60 (1/2):17 - 30 (2008)
Some central issues offin-de-siècle Hungarian philosophy and intellectual tradition can be retrieved from the writings of József Eötvös and his mid-nineteenth century contemporaries. An ambiguous attitude towards metaphysics, emphasis on sociological issues as well as a regional perspective are apparent in his texts prior to the emergence of the great fin-de-siècle generation of Hungarian intellectuals. They survived the Habsburg Empire thanks to the post-Monarchical literary tradition and Péter Esterházy's works; they provided an adequate vocabulary for the Central European experience following the Soviet Era
