• Previous editions of Béla Hamvas’s A bor filozófiája (written in 1945), including those in Hungarian, omitted some material that has been restored in this translation, making it the first complete edition of the work in any language. A new translation of a unique and much-loved book by the philosopher and writer Béla Hamvas, only the second of his works to be available in English. „The Philosophy of Wine” is an apologia for the rare, solemn moments of life, of ease, of play, and self-forgetful serenity.
