Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0877845387, Paperback)Man is dead. God is dead. Life has become meaningless existence, man a cog in a machine. The only way of escape lies in a nonrational fantasy world of experience, drugs, absurdity, pornography, an elusive "final experience," madness . . . .If this is the twentieth-century mentality, how did it come about? And how can the Christian faith be made meaningful today? In this highly original book Dr. Schaeffer traces the way in which art and philosophy have reflected the dualism in Western thinking introduced at the time of the Renaisance. Today this dualism is expressed in a despair of rationality and an escape into a nonrational world which alone offers hope. It is shown in literature, art and music, theatre and cinema, television and popular culture.
