Read full description of the books:
This book is one of the most engrossing books I have read in a long time. Luc Ferry knows philosophy, and it is clear he loves philosophy. But what sets this book apart - and what is rare with a book like this - is that Ferry clearly loves his reader. Also his prose (even translated?!) is a joy in itself.
I appreciated his generous posture toward "believers." Though he rejects revelation-based philosophies, he respects them. For instance, he wants the Christian doctrine of resurrection to be true - but cannot rest in it. Instead, he carries the reader along the history of thought, drawing out the dizzying reach and eventual limitations of humanistic philosophy through the ages. In the end, he commends a humanism - following Husserl - that embraces "transcendence within immanence." Ferry's outline of humanism stands in stark opposition to revealed Christianity. Yet in the end (with Ferry!) I found the resurrection beautiful in the way it meets our deepest problems. He resists, but I found my love and gratitude for this promise grow.
