A través de diversos temas ;la Biblia, los angeles historia de los angeles ciencia y de las matemáticas, l. a. ontología de Heidegger, l. a. poesía de Paul Celan;, Steiner examina los angeles desesperanza que ha sembrado los angeles duda racional a lo largo del siglo XX. Reconoce que, tal vez, l. a. ciencia y l. a. tecnología hayan reemplazado al arte y l. a. literatura como fuerzas conductoras de nuestra cultura, lo que trasluce una pérdida significativa. Y, sin embargo, Steiner concluye esta obra mayor con una elocuente evocación de cómo los comienzos, pese a todo, son interminables.
