Beschreibung"A stimulating and readable venture in the history of ideas. Blending arguments and material from philosophy, theology, history and science, Rue addresses, a fundamental problem in Western Culture: the crisis of meaning and the eclipse of the shared value system upon which personal wholeness and social coherence in the West have been based." - Journal of Interdisciplinary Discourse "This fascinating, controversial work combines insights from biology, the natural history of culture, biblical study, and philosophical theology. Its thesis is that Western Culture is in crisis because it lacks a cultural mythology as a matrix for shared meanings.... Thoughtful and well argued." - Choice"
