About the Author

Karl Stern was born in Bavaria in 1906, to socially assimilated Jewish parents. He studied medicine in Munich, Berlin and Frankfurt, specializig in psychiatric research. He emigrated from Nazi Germany in 1936, finding work in neurological research in England, and later as lecturer in neuropathology and assistant neuropathologist at the Montreal Neurological Institute. In 1943, after much soul-searching, and ultimately influenced by encounters with Jacques Maritain and Dorothy Day, Stern received baptism as a Catholic.


A Freudian psychiatrist of Jewish birth, a Roman Catholic and a mean of letters--this is a unique and remarkable combination. Admirers of The Pillar of Fire and The Third Revolution will find even greater insight and compassion in Dr Stern's new hook exploring the hidden sources of anti-feminist writing in Europe from Schopenhauer to Sartre.--Graham Greene
One of the most important books of our times, it seems to me. Dr. Stern reads like a poet, and uses his professional training in order to arrive at profound insights, instead of being hamstrung by it, as most Freudian literary critics are.--Caroline Gordon
