Review of Metaphysics 36 (2):468-469 (1982)

The names of the authors of the preface and the "postface" indicate the respect of the European philosophic community for the author of this volume. Outside that community, however, Jan Patocka was known more for his Socratic death at the hands of secret police interrogators than for his no less Socratic life and work. Except for three brief interludes, his works have been suppressed by the masters, first Nazi, then Soviet, of his native Czechoslovakia. In great part, they circulated privately, in typescript, in the Czech originals. It is most welcome that they are at last becoming available in print and in a language commonly understood by philosophers.
