Abstract

This collection concerns Sechs Aerzte sprechen ueber Leben und Tod (Six Doctors Discuss Life and Death), a manuscript of over 600 pages written by Ernest Lens under the nom de plume Mme. Po-Jo Syn Luke. Lens hoped that it would popularize the ideas of Austrian philosopher and writer Josef Popper-Lynkeus. The work is a fictional summary of six doctors' wide-ranging philosophical discussions about the United States, addressing Popper-Lykeus' themes of tolerance, the individual and his valuation, social reform, and military service. The collection includes a bound typescript, loose typescript pages, and supporting research material.
