Angels, Apes and Man (16005)

SKU: 16005
  • In modern times, which have become increasingly the times of science, three views about man have come sharply in focus. One view has for its matrix rationalism whose inner logic prompts its devotees to present man a an almost disembodied being, an angel of sort. This view originated with Descartes and culminated with Kant and other German idealists. The view that man is a superior sort of animal found in Rousseau its major prophet and in Darwin its principal scientific advocate. A powerful corrective to these two extreme views arose through the scientific achievements of Einstein and in spite of Einstein's emphatic claim that bodily death was the end of man.
