The famous philosopher, historian, theologian and politician Ernst Troeltsch (1865–1923) was one of the most prominent advocates of the democratic idea in Germany during the First World War and in the following years until his death. Robert E. Norton presents for the first time the dramatic history of his activity during these turbulent, decisive years.
