Product description


A magnificent achievement, highly readable, absorbing and stimulating - LITERARY REVIEW

His erudition is formidable

[A] vividly engaging conspectus of the formative ideas of the past century - NEW STATESMAN

I recommend this book to anyone who needs to know what the loss of religious faith has meant to the high culture of our civilsation and what, if anything, we might do about it.... (it) covers a whole century of intellectual endeavour as lightly as it can. - INDEPENDENT

This book will appeal to anyone with intellectual curiosity about the human condition and the development of ideas. It will especially appeal to the non-religious reader. This isn't a book about, or even particularly in defence of atheism as a worldview, but it sets out objectively a history of non-religious thought that covers everything from science to poetry, incorporating philosophy, the rise of new age 'spiritualism' and therapy - ENTERTAINMENT FOCUS

The beauty of this book is Watson's ability to impose order on a riot of ideas - PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY

Book Description

A dazzling investigation into psychology, art and religion; the demise of capitalism; and the beginning of a new era from the author of IDEAS.
