At the Mind’s Limits is the story of one man’s incredible struggle to understand the reality of horror. In five autobiographical essays, Amery describes his survival—mental, moral, and physical—through the enormity of the Holocaust. Above all, this masterful record of introspection tells of a young Viennese intellectual’s fervent vision of human nature and the betrayal of that vision.

Sidney Rosenfeld, Ph.D. is Professor of German at Oberlin College. He is cotranslator of Radical Humanism by Jean Amery and Jewish Life in Germany edited by M. Richarz.

Stella P. Rosenfeld, Ph.D. is cotranslator of Radical Humanism by Jean Amery and Jewish Life in Germany edited by M. Richarz.


“These are pages that one reads with almost physical pain...all the way to its stoic conclusion.”

—Primo Levi

“The testimony of a profoundly serious man.... In its every turn and crease, it bears the marks of the true.”

—Irving Howe, New Republic

“This remarkable the autobiography of an extraordinarily acute conscience. With the ear of a poet and the eye of a novelist, Amery vividly communicates the wonder of a philosopher—a wonder here aroused by the ‘dark riddle’ of the Nazi regime and its systematic sadism.”
