Thinking About God: Philosophy Without Straining Your Brain

« Whats Wrong With The Zeitgeist Movie? | Main | David Berlinski: Before you can ask 'Is Darwinian theory correct or not?' »



The pity of this is that we're all, in our advancing adulthood, beginning to understand how badly we were cheated in our education.

Granted, we could have paid better attention, and the libraries were always open. But it was the responsibility of the educators to direct us to the thoughts most worth thinking. Education in the West used to include the basics of the great ideas even in the elementary grades, and taught students the tools of reason prior to their entering high school. When you and I were educated, Greg, they were optional even in college, buried deep in curriculum guides littered with "Feminism in Cinema" and "The Economic Tools of Oppression."

Yes, by all means, let's learn the great thoughts from great thinkers. As the West collapses, we need to have sound thoughts to pass on to those who will rebuild what has fallen down.

What? Don't start your philosophy journey with a book like this! Start with something that surveys the great minds of philosophy historically and objectively, like The Story of Philosophy, by Will Durant.

Thanks for your kind review, Greg!

I urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. Jude 3

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

For we did not follow cleverly contrived myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; instead, we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 2 Peter 1:16
