And how does our culture of the self, with its daily calls for self-expression and self-transformation, co-exist with our world of modern science and its implicit determinism?This essay offers a new and strikingly original interpretation of Western thought.

It explores the metaphysics of Moses in the Torah, the Greek idea of soul and the importance of the body in historic church Christianity. Todays conventional wisdom--that modernity is founded in materialism and that theology provides an antidote--is exactly backwards- early modern philosophy thoroughly rejected the physicality of Christianity in favor of man as essentially mind, and German idealist philosophy transformed man as essentially mind into todays man of ego.

in doing so, it also established a basis for modern scientific determinism rooted in human intentions.The essay is sweeping in scope--yet understated, elegant and humane. It offers much needed guidance for how to live a thoughtful, even noble life in todays world.
