about

Covers many who were considered heroes and icons, showing they were really human just like us. None of us are perfect and some, in positions of power or influence, can be downright stupid. This book is filled with good examples. Covers Aristotle and the ancient world, Augustine and the Church fathers, leaders of the Renaissance, pioneers of the modern age, the great modern philosophers, and other interesting eras. Includes stories on Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther, Montaigne, Francis Bacon, Copernicus, Galileo, Sir Isaac Newton, Descartes, Kant, Hegel, Emerson, Franklin, Jefferson, Lincoln, Sir James Jeans, Arthur Eddington, Arnold Toynbee, various popes, and more. The companion book is similar, but relates more directly to the Christian religion. Covers the savagery of a hell-fire God, teachings of Paul, the puerility of the Jesus story, the real founders of the Church, and more.
