"An admirable model...[Baumer] deliberately cuts across several disciplines such as religion, political science, philosophy, science, and historical writing...The editorial comment is outstanding...For each of the main sections he has provided first-rate introductions which emphasize the 'climate of opinion' concept. Mr. Baumer can sketch the social setting of ideas, summarize the different interpretations of each period, and indicate what he considers to be the key words, terms, and symbols of the era in a manner that is thoroughly up to date without being biased of debunking." - Wallace Evan Davies, American Quarterly
