In The Lukacs Reader, his biographer Arpad Kadarkay represents the great range and variety of Lukacss output. The reader includes, in original translations, and with introductory essays, Lukacs on: Kierkegaard, Shakespeare, Ford, Strindberg, Ibsen, Wilde, Shaw, Gaughin, Dostoevsky, Nietzsche, and Heidegger. Also collected are: the autobiographical essay On the Poverty of Spirit, material from Lukacss diary, and such key articles as: Aesthetic Culture, The Ideology of Modernism, Bolshevism as an Ethical Problem, and Class Consciousness. What emerges is a figure very much at the centre of European thought whose value to modern culture and philosophy differs markedly from that which received opinion generally admits.
