Samenvatting

Theology can no longer exist in isolation from politics, philosophy and literature. This is Nicholas Boyle's basis for an examination of personal and cultural identity in today's world. His exploration of the global mind reveals the continuing importance of a Christian perspective in a secular world. He shows that modern trends towards greater diversity and pluralism and simultaneous trends towards greater unification can be reconciled within the Catholic humanist tradition of theology, philosophy and literature. He identifies Postmodernism as 'the pessimism of an obsolescent class - the salaried official intelligentsia - whose fate is closely bound up with that of the declining nation-state'. In this brilliant book, Dr Boyle gives new grounds for optimism about the emerging new world order

Recensie(s)

[A] Christian tract for our times in the best traditions of Newman, Chesterton, or T. S. Eliot., Dr. Boyle analyses the revolutionary impact of globalisation, and he devotes several essays to explaining how we got here--as invisibly erudite a brief intellectual history of the West as I have ever read. --The Times (London)
