The Threat to Reason - How the Enlightenment was Hijacked and How We Can Reclaim It

Manufacturer: Verso Books

Product Information

 

Today, media commentators, intellectuals and politicians declare that western science and rationality are threatened by irrational enemies. Evangelicals, postmodernists, and Islamists are on the march, they say. The Rome that science built is under siege. Dan Hind suggests there's a problem with these stirring attempts to defend the truth - that they aren't true.

This book shows that the real threats to reason aren't wacky or foreign or stupid; they reside in our state and corporate bureaucracies - and, one way or another, they probably pay your salary. In recovering the idea of Enlightenment, Hind explores its vital importance and reveals how it can help us to achieve a truly democratic politics, in which we have a genuine say in the decisions that are taken on our behalf.

Hardback edition. Verso, 2007.
