Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415110300, Paperback)

This study concerns the role of thought and knowledge. The author rejects the notion that our thinking processes neutrally report on what is "out there" in an objective world. He explores the manner in which thought actively participates in forming our perceptions, our sense of meaning and our daily actions. He suggests that collective thought and knowledge have become so automated that we are in large part controlled by them, with a subsequent loss of authenticity, freedom and order.
