Format: Paperback
In this book the author discusses the dreadful consequences of the ideas of Darwin, Marx, Julius Wellhausen [and special mention Einstein], Sigmund Freud, John Dewey, John Maynard Keynes, and Soren Kierkegaard. He says, very tellingly, of Keynes (but could be applied to all): "Is Keynes really to be blamed ... ? We think not. [He] can only exercise power because he panders to the irascible nature of mankind. Keynsian economics gave to the Roosevelt administration and to successive govts of this and other lands an excuse to live the lives of economic dissipation, which was their intention in the first place." Breese begins the book by observing: "The means by which one person is able to rule many others is a fascinating subject of study. Invariably, the explanation of such control is that it is a matter of the mind. Any ruler, no matter how numerous his weapons or great his wealth, must finally rule by ... persuasion ... [by] produc[ing] in the minds of others ... a kind of little god [an ideology]."

Darwin's (1809-82) chapter is "Biology is Destiny" and we're all familiar with the damage resulting from his legacy, including the idea (i.e. scientISM) that it represents some godlike oracle whose pronouncements can't reasonably be questioned, instead of the more accurate view as a humble and LIMITED servant of curious mankind. A great example is Carl Sagan's famous statement that "the Cosmos is all there is, ever was, or ever will be," posing as a statement of omniscient science but actually a statement of Sagan's personal faith committment to atheistic, materialistic naturalism. Breese also discusses how Darwin's ideas inspired "social darwinism" and "survival of the fittest" (i.e. that social evolution should be consciously patterned after nature in this way).

Format: Paperback
I found Dr. Dave Breese's book to be well written and very informative. It helps explain the mess that our current society now finds itself. Several others have reviewed this book negatively only because they have a very different Worldview than the biblical one. Dr. Breese does not have a problem with the Seven Men because they do not agree with him, but because of the fruit of their teaching. Jesus Christ taught us that "you will know them by their fruit". The fruit of the teachings from the 7 men is clear. The rejection of absolute right and wrong, or absolute truth is rejected by society. Existentialism lives; evolution is the lie of the day, but it is not because God is not Omnipotent, and we christians do not fear these philosophies as one reviewer stated. Several reviewers appear to have a problem with the Christian Worldview, not really with the book. Dr. Breese gives such great insight into the strongholds of the secular mind that have been controled by the philosophy of the day. Every true christian should read this book and be enlightened to the mindset of our day.

Format: Paperback
First off, the title is misleading. The author discusses eight dead white men, but the title seems to convey there are only seven dead white men who rule the world from the grave.

Further, and let's get this much out of the way first: there are four men too many described in this book. They are Albert Einstein, Julius Wellhausen, John Dewey, and Soren Kierkegaard. I say four too many because:

(1) the author admits Einstein, in particular, "cannot 'officially' make" one of the seven. (Is this why then the author claims there are just seven men who rule the world from the grave?) What is the scale of impact for these men ruling from their graves in terms of grave and serious consequences to life and society? Answer: They are neither seriously grave nor significantly negative. What the author wishes to point out is how destructive to religious values is the notion of Relativism, and since the author needs to start somewhere, he starts with Einstein's theory of relativity which has nothing to do at all, the author admits, with Relativism. (The author should have discussed the ideas of the Greek philosopher Protagoras if he really wanted to get to the source of Relativism.)

(2) How much has the general public ever seriously discussed Julius Wellhausen's ideas? (Who?) Besides being a liberal theologian (and a completely new figure to me in the history of ideas, I'm glad to admit), the author treats this Bible interpreter much as he treated Einstein: makes his ideas (indirectly) responsible for all sorts of society ills and irreligion when, in fact, it was others who used his ideas essentially to "wreak havoc," if that is even the right phrase, whereby the Bible interpreter's liberalism "explodes" in the 20th century with Liberation Theology.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a lot compressed into a book of this size. Breese explains coherently, the effects and meaning behind these most influential men's words and actions of the past. Each chapter deals separately with each man.

There are many who may have never of heard of all of these men, but we are surely feeling their (negative) influence even today. As the author puts it, "Much of modern education, commercial interaction, social planning, intellectual conviction, and even religion is still guided by the constructs formulated by those thinkers of an earlier generation."

A hundred other men could have been added to the list. But he believes these seven men "were the progenitors of the most influential movements of this [20th] century"; "they ruled the world more permanently"; "contended for our minds", and these are those men:

Charles Darwin: what has come to be known as, "social Darwinism"; this man is credited with evolution, materialism, naturalism, and natural selection. And now these are being treated as if it were fact; as "a law, as gravity is a law". The ultimate devastation is occurring in our public education. Breese contends, "Our society has come to assume that the source of all knowledge is science; once a thing is established as being scientific, it moves beyond debate and becomes an article of faith."

Karl Marx: think of him as a "social philosopher" or a "professional revolutionary". He is of course famous for his "Communist Manifesto": "scientific socialism", worlds destiny, anti-capitalist, atheism, utopia----read it----a tightness will wallow up in your throat----because you will understand Marxism is very much with us. It is even seen as liberalism in the church.
