Seven Great Freethinking
Philosophers (large print)
Zeno, Epicurus, Augustine, Averroes,
Spinoza, and Edith Stein
In an age of
conformity brought on by huge cult-like corporations and ubiquitous social
media is there still a road less traveled one might choose to follow? How
better to confront the conformity of the 21st century than by consulting
history's seven great freethinking philosophers? We live in a time of stereotypical
ignorance: "Christians have narrow minds
and oppose diversity," "Muslims value blind faith over reason,"
and “Women have never made any great contributions to philosophy.” Seven
Great Freethinking Philosophers crushes these myths by
detailing how seven great minds fought against conformity in their own ages and
left us an inheritance of thought, now almost forgotten, fundamental to human dignity, the scientific method, healthy living, and academic and religious freedom. A must read for all current, or aspiring, freethinkers.
