Consciousness and Society
By H. Stuart Hughes
Knopf, 1958, 433 pp

In this exceptionally interesting and wide-ranging essay in intellectual history Professor Hughes is concerned chiefly with those thinkers, at the turn of the century, who have so profoundly influenced the mental climate of our times: Durkheim, Pareto, Croce, Sorel, Bergson, Freud, the neo-idealists and Max Weber.
