    PDF Four Prophets of Our Destiny My takeaway from this little book was that Kierkegaard was a protestant religious fanatic who criticized the hypocrisy of the Church Dostoyevsky seemed to have been struggling with his Faith and criticized the Roman Catholic Church Nietzsche was an atheist who did not believe in morals and Kafka well God is just totally

This is a decent book about the four proto existentialists listed in the title as far as biographical information basic concepts and clear writing go 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 However the last two where Hubben shows his true colors and fully presents his uniue ideas seem to miss the point His basic thesis is that these four writers can be used by religious people especially Christians to fix the church and many of the modern mainly spiritual issues that he discusses throughout the book While I can see the argument for Kierkegaard and Dostoevsky being made and he generally makes it well it s much harder for Nietzsche and Kafka The whole use Nietzsche against Nietzsche thing is pretty over played at this point and honestly I don t see how Kafka could be used this way at all the final chapters barely mention him So for review of the basics regarding biography and thought of these authors this book is not bad I would not recommend it to anyone as introductory due to the last two chapters and Hubben s final spin on the issues

I don t exactly remember when or where I picked this book up but it has been sitting on my shelf for a few years now After my last book review four days ago I realized that I didn t have any books waiting in ueue As a result I decided to grab this off the shelf as a fill in while waiting for a couple of review books to arrive from the publishersI didn t know what to expect Being already familiar with the lives and writings of these four men this book had the potential to be very good or very dry I m happy to say that it was not a disappointment It wasn t that Hubben introduced new facts about the lives of these four men much has already been written in terms of their biographies Nor was it that Hubben had any new interpretations of their works to offer Rather the strength of the book is in how it identifies common traits about their lives and the uniue insight that each one had into the future of western civilizationThe book describes how Kierkegaard Denmark 1813 1855 Dostoevsky Russia 1821 1881 Nietzsche Germany 1844 1900 and Kafka Czechoslovakia 1883 1924 writing from their their own times peered into the future to see how the philosophies of their own time would cause a ripple effect resulting in a tidal wave of depravity in the subseuent generations Many people like to make dire predictions about how current culture will result in disaster for the following generation Rarely have any of these predictions come to pass with such startling accuracyAs Hubben points out these dire predictions did not win these men any friends They lived as outcasts and their cries were seen as exaggerated fantasies of insane intellectuals What makes these men different from the conspiracy theorists of today however is that they were not necessarily looking to make a name for themselves they simply sounded a clarion call for their times Their warnings were based on real observations and contained a strong moral element For Kierkegaard it was the conception of faith that stripped it of its individual nature and reduced it to mere intellectual assent in concert with the masses In 19th century Denmark to be a Dane was to be a Christian After all all Danes were Lutheran and that was enough Dostoevsky mourned the loss of human dignity that came with the Utilitarianism and Rationalism that was starting to gain ground Nietzsche as debased as he was himself saw Christianity as becoming so proud of her own status that they looked down upon sinners with contempt Kafka died in 1924 well before the concentration camps and other atrocities of Nazi Germany which he predicted with precisionI really enjoyed how Hubben wove their lives together and demonstrated that many of the things which we complain about today were seen well before they came to pass by four very different men living in different parts of the world and yet observing the same condition in man Not all of these men were Christian and certainly none of them were good moral examples in all their deeds but their keen insight into the human condition and astute observations make them worth reading In this book Hubben has made them accessible to the beginner and has spotted a common theme in their writings which will thrill the existing fans
