Maurice Friedman
Views 'Image of Man'

Deny Our Nothingness:
"To
Contemporary Images of Man," by
Maurice Friedman, will be pub-
lished by Delacorte Press Feb. 23.
In this new book, the distin-
guished philosopher and authority
on Martin Buber is concerned with
the often-used phrase "the image
of man" not as purely descriptive,
a photographic representation of
the factual, nor as an abstract
ideal, but as a direction of move-
ment which shapes the raw mate-
rial of experience that is given
to the individual human being into
an authentic personal and human
existence.
"The image of man," he writes,
"is an integral part of man's
search to understand himself in
order to become himself, of his
search for an image of authentic
personal existence." This, he con-
tinues, "does not mean some moral
standard imposed from without,
or some universal 'ought' that
need ogly be applied. It means a
meaningful, personal direction, a
response from within to what one
meets in each new situation, stand-
ing one's ground and meeting the
world with the attitude that is
rooted in this ground."
"To Deny Our Nothingness"
contains critical studies of the
images of man created by writers
such as Malraux, Silone, Bergson,
Kazantzakis, Aldous Huxley, T. S.
Eliot, Bernanos, Graham Greene,
Simone Weil, Freud, Jung, Her-
mann Hesse, D ewe y, Sullivan
Fromm, Sartre, Camus, Kierke-
gaard, Buber, Tillie h, Kafka,
Beckett and others, discussed
within the framework of a num-
ber of important types of contem-
porary images of man.

love alike. I had rather have 11
