Ideas Have a History offers a history of ideas from ancient Greece to postmodern times. From the time of the Greeks, the West has experienced a dramatic transition in the way it views "truth." For there no longer exists a blind faith in the objective truth, but, rather a denial of the possibility of truth. What role have religion, philosophy, and science played in this transition? Ideas Have a History should be of interest to all those who are interested in the relationship between science and religion, in the role that theory of knowledge plays in human thought and action belief systems, and in the manner in which a study of the past helps elucidate the present.
