The Consequences of Ideas: Understanding the Concepts That Shaped Our World
R. C. Sproul
From The Publisher:
If you think philosophy is irrelevant to your daily life, think again.
You only need observe the world around you to discover how substantially the ideas of history's thinkers affect us still. You can hear it in the beliefs of your non-christian friends. In the media, your music, your children's classrooms. You can see it in our public policies, on every bookstore shelf, in a way we understand our very existence—even in the church.
We like to believe that we create our little worlds from scratch and then live in them. But the reality is, we step into an environment that already exists, and we learn to interact with it. The game has been conceived long before us; the rules and boundaries already decided.
R. C. Sproul traces the contours of Western philosophy throughout history and demonstrates the massive consequences these ideas have had on world events, theology, the arts, and culture—as well as in our everyday lives.
