    1. کتاب را صرفا به این دلیل خواندم که چندسال پیش یکی از دوستان به من داده بود بخوانم، و حالا پس از چندسال میخواهم کتاب را پس بدهم و مطمئنم که میپرسد چطور بود و گمان نمیکنم جالب باشد بعد از چندسال بگویم نخواندمش! ردرباره محتواچهار سوار سرنوشت، یا به ترجمه دقیق عنوان، «چهار پیشگوی س [...]


    2. انطباعياً بعد قراءته، هذا الكتاب أثار في ذهني عبارة من فيلم "أيظن" المصري الكوميدي: "إخس و انا اللي افتكرتك راجل طلعت لُك لُك لُك و فعل ما فيش".هو بعنوانه الفضفاض الأصلي بالانجليزية مناقض لضمور محتواه، مثل صور الأطباق على لائحة المأكولات التي يناولك اياها النادل في مطعم، كبير [...]


    3. "لا يحتاج من يحب الله إلي دموع وإلي كلمات إعجاب. إنه ينسي معاناته في الحب، ينساها بكاملها لدرجة أنه لا توجد لديه فكرة ولو ضئيلة عن آلامه لو لم يتذكرها الله. هو يري الخفي ويعرف العذاب، يحصي الدموع ولا ينسي شيئاً"


    4. 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 more books waiting in queue. 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 publishers.I 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 [...]


    5. يُقدم الكتاب مدخلاً لفهم سورين كريغارد هذا الرجل الذي قال "لا" للكنسية دونَ أن يتخلى عن إيمانه.كريكغارد هو فيلسوف توفي شاباً دونَ أن يتم تقديره إلى أن اعيد للحياة بعد ذلك بسنوات.كان مؤمناً متصوفاً بالمعرفة أول من أبتكر المذهب الوجودي في الفلسفة، لكنها لم تكن وجودية عدمية كوج [...]


    6. This is a nice, quick read that sufficiently gives the reader a general understanding of each of these great thinkers. It is most interesting to see these writers through the eyes of someone who has just come through the second World War. Hubbard compares and contrasts these writers with more of a Christian theological leaning.


    7. Not a fun or inspirational read, but a good overview. I also like the last chapter where Hubben compares and contrasts the 4 great thinkers. Very informative.


    8. Excellent book on these four prophetic thinkers who saw what was coming in the social landscape. It's a small book on the heavy topic of existentialism. It actually feels like a college paper or thesis, which didn't bother me too much as apparently I skipped Philosophy classes in college.If you don't know much about Dostoevsky, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, and Kafka, and don't mind getting a little depressed, this book will give you a grasp and make you feel more intelligent (!). Just mention Nietzsc [...]


    9. إن كونية الحق تخترق بإشعاعها كل مكان؛ إنها أعظم من أن تحصر داخل نمط معين واحدإن الدين يكمن في العالم الداخلي و الروحي ويمتنع على التواصل المباشر والمنطقيإن جوهر الوجود الانساني هو عدم اليقين. كان في الحقيقة مديناً لذكراها بتلك البصيرة المتعمقة في علاقة الإنسان باللهكان كير [...]


    10. Excelente ensayo sobre importantes figuras de la escritura Europea. Es al punto, con una excelente descripción sobre la filosofía que profesaba cada uno y aquello en lo que creían. Escrito de manera entendible a pesar de desarrollar la filosofía de cada uno de los escritores en detalle.


    11. From the chapter on Nietzsche: "Society, considering itself moral and good in the conventional, Christian sense, hates the higher type of man and considers his isolation the result of guilt and the well deserved stigma of social unfitness."

    13. "الحق قوة، لكننا لا نراه إلا في حالات نادرة لأنه حق: يتألم دائماً ويجب أن يهزم طالما هو حق. أما عندما ينتصرهذا الحق فنري الأخرين ينصتون إليه. لماذا؟ ألأنه حق؟ لا، فلو كانوا لهذا السبب لأنضموا إليه عندما كان يتألم أيضاً. ولهذا فأن عدم إنضمامهم إليه ليس للقوة التي يمتلكها. إنهم ي [...]


    14. 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 unique ideas, seem [...]

    17. هذا الكتاب مدخل للسيرة الشخصية ل سيرين كيركيجارد ، هذا الرجل المميز الذي تمسك بفكره واعتقاده وواجه كل من حوله وعانى دون ان يحيد عن ما يؤمن به.لا انكر اني لأول مرة اعرف عن كيركيجارد ولكن بعد هذا الكتاب ووصف ويليام هبين له اصابني الفضول الشديد لقراءة المزيد عنه واقتباسات عنه ^.^ [...]


    18. Nice introduction for these four authors, it makes you want to check more of their works to see for yourself. Moreover, the author also pinpoints similarities between these authors if the argument opens to such. He gives you an introduction to each author and there are parts where the philosophy or thought of an author resembles that of the other so he then relates it to each other and gives you a clearer idea.


    19. It sounds like a paper from a college literature class. But it's a good book. Hey, who wouldn't want to dig deeper into the existentialists. This had punch and didn't take a sad lifetime's worth of pages to deliver the message. Powerful stuff. I won't address the major points -- they are in the book and it is short.


    20. This rather Christian appraisal was one of my earlier introductions to these four writers. Although I had some substantial familiarity with Nietzsche, I'd read very little of the others and was not able to read this overview as critically as it should have been read.


    21. A decent survey of the four writers. The author's Christian beliefs led him to wrongly criticize Nietzsche and to criticize Kafka for his bleak stories, basically the central characteristic of their ideas.


    22. A nice overview of existential philosophy – well written and concise with perspective on the times they were living in and how it affected their world view.



    23. Misses the target a few times, as will happen with a 50-year-old text. Way too Christ-ish for me. Otherwise a good time.




    24. Great introduction to four very complex and 'apocalyptic' thinkers, Hubbert makes a great argument that their intellectual growth was due to both circumstance and their education as youths
