The Threat to Reason: How the Enlightenment Was Hijacked and How We Can Reclaim it

The Threat to Reason: How the Enlightenment Was Hijacked and How We Can Reclaim it by Daniel Hind

"A profound and much-needed contribution... In the spirit of Enlightenment thinkers, he both reveals the contradictions and hypocrisies of contemporary politcs, and also points a way forward..."
(Joel Bakan, author of The Corporation)
"Since September 11 2001, the idea of Enlightenment has been ripped from university textbooks and airlifted into battle between the West amd its irrational enemies. In this elegant polemical essay, Dan Hind rightly quibbles with this supposedly Manichean tussle between the guarantors of Enlightenment in the West and everyone else. Hind wants to rescue the idea of Enlightenment from its usupers, while pressing it into the service of something better."
(James Harkin, Independent)
