Letters to the Third Millennium

An Experiment In East West Communication

Clinton C. Gardner. Argo, 1981.

This book is Gardner’s first attempt to introduce the general public to Rosenstock-Huessy’s work by relating his own personal thoughts and experiences. In his preface, Gardner writes: “What Rosenstock-Huessy was getting at does not lend itself to formal studies. We should try to speak with him, rather than analyze what he said. He does not offer some finished new ‘philosophy.’ Rather, in all his varied works, he asks us to join him in his search for a new, non-ideological language to describe who we are and where we are going.”

The book, which first appeared in 1981, is written as a journal of the 1970’s, recording trips to Moscow, Canton, Delhi, and Berlin. It also contains a selective bibliography, a brief biography of Rosenstock-Huessy, notes, and an index. (In 2017, the blogger Harley Voogd gave it 4 stars out of 5 on GoodReads.)

Hardbound and paperback, 272 pages.
