Theory of Objective Mind · An Introduction to the Philosophy of Culture
By Hans Freyer

Theory of Objective Mind is the first book of the important German social philosopher Hans Freyer to appear in English. The work of the neo-Hegelian Freyer, especially the much admired Theory of Objective Mind (1923), had a notable influence on German thinkers to follow and on America's two greatest social theorists, Talcott Parsons and Edward Shils.
