A twentieth-century prophet : Oscár Jászi, 1875-1957 by György Litván( )

23 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and Hungarian and held by 1,972 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume represents the first ever extensive biography of Oscar Jaszi, historian, political theorist and sociologist, who dedicated his tremendous intellect to modern democracy in Hungary. A man exiled from his homeland, Jaszi's moral courage stood strong against the political tyranny and totalitarianism of the interwar period that nearly destroyed Hungary's political and social foundations. From his early years as co-founder and editor of the influential Hungarian periodical "Twentieth Century" to his later life as professor at Oberlin College in Ohio, he worked tirelessly for the values of liberalism and humanism, fused with the notion that "a new moral, social, and economic synthesis is needed."" "In this work, the details of Jaszi's life reveal the poignant tragedies and accomplishments that befit a man who refused to compromise his intellectual and moral beliefs, even as he witnessed the dismemberment of his country, two world wars, and the rise of radical ideologies. What was at stake was no less than the very spirit of democracy and intellectual freedom. In this sense, the life of Oscar Jaszi represents one of the great triumphs of reason over violence, regardless of the defeat of his vision for a 'Danubian Federation, ' and his subsequent exile. His vow to not be buried in an undemocratic Hungary was kept, and as his country emerged from the ruins of the Soviet block, his remains were transferred to Budapest in 1991, a symbol of his lasting philosophy and the spirit of his will."--Jacket

Socialism and social science : selected writings of Ervin Szabó, 1877-1918 by Ervin Szabó( Book )

17 editions published between 1982 and 2012 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays and letters of Ervin Szabo (1877-1918) present proof of his critical insight into Marxist theory and of his perceptive analysis of socialism around the turn of the century. His ideals of an engaged social science and an enlightened socialism, his preoccupation with the socialist future, are still relevant today. The writings selected in this work, first published in 1982, are primarily those which address themselves to general issues of the European working-class movement and socialist theory, but there are also a few pieces that characterize the intellectual and political climate of early twentieth-century Budapest. Szabo was one of the theoretical leaders of a whole generation of progressive thinkers from Oscar Jaszi through Karl and Michael Polanyi to Georg Lukacs and many others. The almost insurmountable conflict between theory and practice that characterized Ervin Szabo's life remains a problem that has to be solved by engaged intellectuals whatever the time and place. Background notes and an introduction by the editors help to place the writings in their historical and political context."--
