In a time of war and global turmoil, Edman's words are a clear flickering "Candle in the Dark", sharing the timeless darkness but offering glimpses of light and hope. Excerpt: "The crisis of civilization through which we are living is, though a tragic moment, a moment only in the history of the cosmos, an episode only in the history of men. History moves along in waves; we are caught in the roughest surf today, and hurled about by it. But in the midst of the ocean it will be calm tomorrow. In its depths it is calm today...". Irwin Edman was a professor of philosophy, as well as an author of poetry and some fiction. His works include "Philosopher’s Holiday","Richard Kane Looks at Life", "Four Ways of Philosophy","Philosopher's Quest", and "Arts and the Man - An Introduction to Aesthetics". #346
