Three of the seven “prophets” presented in this book—Descartes,Rousseau, and Nietzsche—provoked or facilitated, through their intellectual activity, great upheavals.
The others—Pascal, Kierkegaard, Dostoevsky, and Soloviev— predicted these very upheavals but showed us the way to overcome them.
If we study all seven of these philosophers in depth, we will have an easier time grasping the essence and origin of the universal drama now unfolding before our eyes and we will make wise and courageous choices for a better future.
Alex Havard walks us through the hills and valleys of recent history: the philosophical pitfalls embraced by the world, and the transcendent values and virtues that will help us overcome them.
This book is our way forward, as a collective community—a way to understand where the intellectual confusion began, so that we may find our way out of it.
