Pál Darabos

The physiognomy of a life’s work

volume I to III, Hamvas Béla

The figure and works of Béla Hamvas uniquely combined the European cultural tradition and a universal metaphysical, religious, and philosophical heritage in Hungarian intellectual life.

In his three-volume monograph, Pál Darabos expertly explores the internal drivers of Hamvas’s oeuvre and presents the era, the life, and thinking of Hamvas through a series of wide tableaus. His easy-to-read style, the never-before-seen  documents and photos will help the reader to form a deeper and richer impression of this outstanding Hungarian genius of the twentieth century.
