Mysticism and Reason

Krumm, John M.
December 1954
New Republic;12/6/54, Vol. 131 Issue 23, p28
This article critically appraises the book "Approaches to God," by Jacques Maritain, edited by Ruth Nanda Anshen. This is one of a series of books intended to reveal basic new trends in modern civilization, to interpret the creative forces at work today in religion, politics, the arts and sciences, and to contribute to a deeper understanding of the interrelation, of men and the universe, the individual and society, and of the values shared by all people. This approach to God is a calm and untroubled one, proceeding by reflection and rational argument.
