Attacks nothing less than the currently prevailing world philosophy–humanism, which the author feels is exceedingly dangerous in its hidden assumptions.


“An outstanding source of ideas for those interested in systematically thinking through the issues surrounding the increasing rate of the distintegration of social and physical organizations and the destruction of nature in the world today.”–Choice


“Ehrenfeld provides a fascinating and extraordinarily topical tour de force on the present discrepancy between the worldwide humanistic faith in reason, science, and technology and the living reality of the human condition.”–American Scientist
