Description

This is an accessible work which aims to provide an understanding of Greek, medieval and modern humanistic life-orientations in their historical development. The book reveals the origin of the modern ideology of community and its subsequent effects in National Socialism. Confronted with the implications of a biblical understanding of the human condition, human society and the place and calling of scholarly reflection, Dooyeweerd contends that humanism has done more for the recognition of human freedom for religious convictions than did 17th-century Calvinism.
