Light Shineth In Darkness
An Essay In Christian Ethics And Social Philosophy

By S.L. Frank

Translated by Boris Jakim

Russian philosopher S. L. Frank here examines the unceasing struggle between good and evil within the limits of this world. Frank combines an interpretation of his life-experience in the light of his Christian faith with his overall philosophical intuition of metaphysical realism.


S.L. Frank (1877–1950) was a leading figure in the fascinating flowering of Russian philosophical thought that spanned roughly the first five decades of this century. Frank was expelled from Russia in 1922 and worked in European exile until his death in London. His most important works are The Object of Knowledge (1915), an examination of the limits of abstract knowledge; The Soul of Man (1917), a work of philosophical psychology; The Foundations of Social Being (1930), a work of social philosophy; The Unknowable (1939); The Light Shineth in Darkness (1949), an exploration of the nature of evil in the world; and Reality and Man (published posthumously in 1956), a metaphysics of human being.
