9781440038495: Ancient Religion and Modern Thought (Classic Reprint)

But it may be well that I should here briefly set down the main outlines of my argument, since, for a reason which I shall presently give, I have preferred not to present it in the form of a systematic treatise. First, then, I ask my readers to look in the face the issue of that great intellectual movement in theE uropean world which is usually termed Modern Thought: a vague term, indeed, although, I suppose, we all know well enough what is meant by it. An essentially negative movement it is its ultimate message to mankind the philo sophy of Schopenhauer and his school: and to an examination of that philosophy my First Chapter is devoted.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Ancient Religion and Modern Thought Thought: a vague term, indeed, although, I suppose, we all know well enough what is meant by it. An essentially negative movement it is - its ultimate message to mankind the philosophy of Schopenhauer and his school: and to an examination of that philo sophy my First Chapter is devoted. But the view of life put before us by the Pessimists is, after all, to a large extent true, nor is it easy to see what answer can be given to their argument save that supplied by religious faith. Is religious faith, then, any longer possible? Or has Modern Thought been so fatal to it as is commonly asserted?

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Ancient Religion and Modern Thought The subject of this book is, I think, sufficiently indicated by its title.

First, then, I ask my readers to look in the face the issue of that great intellectual movement in the European world which is usually termed Modern Thought: a vague term, indeed, although, I suppose, we all know well enough what is meant by it.
