By Hwa Yol Jung
“With this volume Hwa Yol Jung solidifies his reputation as one of the foremost, perhaps the foremost spokesman of the phenomenological orientation in political theory and the study of politics…Erudite in its scholarship and lucid in style, the book deserves a wide readership among philosophers and social theorists.”
Fred Dallmayr, Political Studies
“There is a humanity and humility to Jung’s work that is surely to be welcomed and this collection should act as an appropriate reminder that, however much we undermine the centrality of the subject, politics is about real people with real lives.”
Alan Finlayson, Radical Philosophy
Hwa Yol Jung is emeritus professor of political science at Moravian College, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Among his many publications are Rethinking Political Theory and The Crisis of Political Understanding. More info →

"There are many reasons for writing a biography of Semyon Frank. Quite apart from his philosophy, he lived a remarkable life. Born in Moscow in 1877, he was exiled from Soviet Russia in 1922 and died in London in 1950. The son of a Jewish doctor, he became a revolutionary Social Democrat in his teens and finished his life as a Neoplatonist Christian.
"Seymon Lyudvigovich Frank, the author of the volume here made available for the first time in English translation, was one of the leading Russian philosophers of this century; some authorities consider him the most outstanding Russian philosopher of any age. ... "Man's Soul is a book which perfectly exemplifies the generous conception of the mission and competence of philosophy characteristic of Frank and the other members of the Russian metaphysical movement.
