Editorial Reviews

"This book employs sophisticated philosophical, economic, and institutional analysis to show why the classical, liberal, and theistic tradition of educational philosophy, most tightly and eloquently articulated in our time by C.S. Lewis, must help to direct any really civilized, human educational reform project. Far from being a relic, this tradition may be the remnant that saves us from a vacuous and nihilistic post-human future. The authors have written a profound, powerful, important book deserving a very wide readership and influence." - M.D. Aeschliman, Professor of Education, Boston University; Professor of English, University of Italian Switzerland; Author or The Restitution of Man: C.S. Lewis and the Case Against Scientism"Loomis and Rodriquez have produced a truly seminal and much needed volume that greatly advances understanding of the nature of education and social institutions and why the mechanistic reductionism of naturalism and scientism has been so corrosive . . .No one interested in education or the requisites for free and humane societies should miss this foundational book. Highly recommended!" - David J. Theroux, Founder and President, The Independent Institute; Founder and President, C. S. Lewis Society of California"The pervasive belief in naturalism - the false idea that all fundamental explanations in the world are grounded in material realities - is an intellectual scandal of our time.This provocative book can help you understand why and what we might do about it, especially in rethinking our institutions of higher education." - Robert H. Nelson, Professor, School of Public Policy, University of Maryland
