There are very few statements that I would consider inaccurate, and many of them can be chalked up to this book being written in the 50s, before certain things were known about the writers. So in this sense, the first 4 or 5 chapters are well done.

Dostoevsky, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, and Kafka were all outsiders in their societies, unable to fit into the accepted nineteenth-century categories of theology, philosophy, or belles lettres. Instead, they saw themselves both as the end products of a dying civilization and as prophets of the coming chaos of the twentieth century. But to be transcended, their message must first be absorbed, and that is why the study of them is so important to us now. -William Barrett, The New York Times.

Selections from the great Dostoevsky, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche & Kafka (authors)

My review is very much in line with that of another reviewer, Mr. Townshend. This book by Hubben is a precious and rare volume that fully appreciates the prophetic role of four great thinkers in perceiving and describing the underlying spiritual failure of 19th century Europe. They see that despite European colonial success, middle class religiosity, stable social values, high rates of literacy, incredible industrial productivity, identification with "Christian civilization" [sic], and high level philosophical, theological, artistic, and musical creativity, they each see that underneath lies incredible spiritual emptiness, evil of every kind, chaos, and doom. These "underlying issues" are at the root of the social, economic, and political crises that were the occasion of World Wars I and II, the Nazi holocaust "experiment," and Leninist/Stalinist/post-Stalinist USSR. Especially with Doestoevsky and Kierkegaard, he also sees a reaching out to Christ, seeking a new inward path of connection. These two men were self-consciously struggling in the presence of Christ, just as the author describes common folks who are Christian miners are struggling to affirm their faith in the midst of the daily struggle. A faith affirmed from a secure middle class vantage point is not a faith that will lift mankind out of the morass of his darkness, or out of what Kirkegaard calls "the aesthetic stage." Rather, man must emerge from this darkness (it is a darkness that can afflict so-called Christians as well as atheists) by emergence into a Christ-centered moral and religious "stage."
I totally disagree with the idea that the Christ-centered statements in this book make it too polemical and intellectually dishonest. Rather, the author, Mr. Hubben, has transcended, and helps all to see, that by contrast with a remarkable exposition of "darkness" by these authors we can better see the vibrant hope that exists in "the light."

Some reviewers here are critical of the obvious christo-centric backdrop of this work. In my opinion the subject must be discussed in light of Christianity for a proper treatment. Do you want to deny the influence of Christian thought and worldview in Europe and the West over the last 2000 years? The hyper-atheism we see today is a direct rebuttal of the rise of Christian fundamentalism of the past 100 years and must be looked at against that backdrop to be properly understood.

I was not at all familiar with Kafka and found him not as important as the other 3. I would think the author felt the same as he dedicates just a few pages to him. Kierkegaard gets the most attention as I think the author favors Kierkegaard's conclusion of existentialism.
A pure existentialism ought to lead man to nihilism or perhaps suicide. Kierkegaard believed existentialism is one plane as the spiritual life, rather, a belief in God is the highest plane that is initiated by a "paradoxical leap of faith".

Nietzsche is fully aware of the implications that the "death of God" would bring upon Europe. His wanting to do away with Christian morality all together was not so much to satisfy the aesthetic needs of man but an indictment on the church. For he and Kierkegaard both agreed that Christianity was losing it intellectual credibility. The church, according to Kierkegaard was the main culprit in the watered down Christianity Europe was producing.

Nietzsche admired the psychological depth of the characters in Dostoevsky's novels. Dostoevsky was a master of revealing man's sinful nature and penchant for evil boiling just beneath the surface. Dostoevsky's belief in God was one of doubt and insecurity and required several paradoxical leaps that Kierkegaard so aptly described.
The author waits till the last few pages to brilliantly join in on the Kierkegaardian critique of the current state of the Christian church here in the west.
To complain of the Christian backdrop of the book is uninsightful and would never have produced such a well informed and insightful work.

This short work provides biographical sketches of these four late 19th century thinkers and attempts to examine the intersection of their writings and the influence they collectively had on subsequent European and western thought. It succeeds in establishing a common thread of prophetic understanding of societal changes and upheavals that were just below the horizon and that the following century and all that followed brought some of the vision of these writers into reality.
I think the author did a credible job of synthesis given the shortness of this book.
