The Unknown Quantity

Hermann Broch
Published in 1933, The Unknown Quantity is Hermann Broch's study of the underlying chaos-and, finally, the impossibility-of life within a society whose values are in decay. As the sensitive mathmetician Richard Hieck tries to reconcile the conflicting demands of love and science, of passion and reason, societal and family values begin to undermine him and those in his orbit.
