Format: Paperback
In the aftermath of Marxism and pragmatism the western world and its citizens have lost the anchor for their moral lives. Belieiving in the goodness of progress, not only can we no longer answer the question, "progressing to what," but it does not even occur as a question to be asked. Instead all progress is deemed beneficial. Nonetheless, we are still plagued by doubts that there must be limits to what we can and should do; plagued by the inclination that all progress must be directed toward some good. Grant argues that in order to recement our moral beings and give direction to the technological progress that we hold dear, we must return to an older, ancient vision of human beings. A vision of humans as creatures whose rightful end lies not merely in untrammelled freedom, but also in recognition of our limitations.

Format: Paperback
'Philosophy in the Mass Age' is probably the most well-known of George Grant's books, and certainly the one that made him a household name in Canada. Writing as a philosopher with a deep engagement with Christianity, Grant shows how the rise of technology has erased the ancient certainties of faith and now drives us to redefine the meaning of our lives and our place in history. Grant is no Luddite; although the new possibilities afforded by the staggering technological development of recent decades can only precipitate a profound crisis in meaning, Grant acknowledges the enormous benefits that technology, used wisely, has given us. The core of Grant's philosophy is the question whether we can receive the material gift of technology without suffering the death of the soul.
