Description

This work includes a detailed interview with Elias, in which he discusses different stages in his life and career: from his upbringing within a middle-class family to his experiences as a soldier during the World War I; from his student days in Heidelberg to the beginning of the Nazi period, when he emigrated first to France and then to England, where he taught for many years at the University of Leicester. The second part of the book provides an intellectual autobiography, in which Elias discusses the connection between the development of his theories and his life experience.
