In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Much of modern fiction, whether it can be said to be existential in theme or not, is concerned with deep philosophical problems. The rapid technological development and increase in the very tempo of our lives so noticeable in the Twentieth Century has caused many thinkers to re-evaluate and rediscover fundamental truths and ideas. A sense of isolation or estrangement from other men and from God is a dominant theme in today's writing. Modern man feels lost or alone when he observes the world around him. Thrown hack upon the limited resources of his own mind, each thinking man feels a need for making absolute truths applicable in his own life."
