Format: Hardcover
This volume contains an autobiographical essay from which the reader can track Grünbaum's intellectual development back to his early years of growing up in Nazi Germany and all the way up to recent times in republican USA. A valuable resource to the lay person and to the serious student of Grünbaum the man and philosopher alike. In this volume you will also find some of Grünbaum's critique of religion which is generally harsh but fair. His polemical style is widely known and feared among church leader of all known denominations not in the least the psychoanalytical cult of Freud. In this volume you will also find excellent essays by leading scholars on the main topics of interest to Grünbaum namely the philosophy of physics, religion and psychology. I've been waiting some years for this book to appear and now that it's out, i feel fully compensated for the long wait. If you are a friend of truth and just, unadulterated reasoning, this is a book for you.
