And with that Georg Lukács makes more sense....

J.P. Stern reviews ‘Georg Lukács’ by Arpad Kadarkay · LRB 26 September 1991 
Ill-favoured in his looks, he seems to have been frightened of attractive women and given to hiding his shyness behind huge metaphysical statements. 
So that explains it.  No wonder I'm always confused when I read him--he is making up for himself with "big thoughts".
