in his book "Pathos" he looked back after several decades at the time he spent recovering at his aunt's home after dismissed from military service, wounded in a train bombing, the time he started reading philosophy: "i got my hands on Kirkegaard's study titled Criticism of Time. no society, no poetry, no thinking, no religion, all there is, corruption and confusion. that's right, i thought, but it must have started somewhere. i set out to finding that dark spot, the "proton pseudos", the beginning of lies... i have been tracking backwards from the middle of the previous century, to the French revolution, to the Enlightenment movement, to Rationalism, through the middle ages to the antient Greeks, to the Hebrews, to the Egyptians, to primitivity. I found the signs of crisis everywhere, but the crisis seemed rooted deeper. that originating point of darkness was before that, and before. my mistake was that of the typical european blindness: i looked for the dark spot in what surrounded me, while it was within me..."

-i offer this translation to include to the article if you can find a use for it, it is taken from the Hungarian version of the article, and i think it gives a good leverage to the spirit of Hamvas Bela's writing. (talk) 18:53, 28 December 2017 (UTC).
