4.0 out of 5 stars Great problem analysis but missing answer, March 31, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Outstanding research on the social and economic changes in last 50 years.

In the last chapter, the author discredited the European model with an inaccurate view of what it really is, disregarded the significant differences in northern and southern Europe countries and didn't sufficiently cover his view that libertarianism will be the solution to the loss of social and civic participation in our communities and in some respects is counter to increased religious participation.

A Disquisition on Religion, Science and the State: Essay

4.0 out of 5 stars Walt S, February 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Not enough emphasis on the moral and ethical teachings to complement state provided education which usually avoids these.

Not enough mention of some of the great role models that religion has provided to inspire mankind positive efforts to improve human relationships.

3.0 out of 5 stars Education reform problems, August 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Tony like so many others has focused on just 1 or 2 of almost a dozen problems with our K-12 education system and uses just a few non typical school systems to prove his thesis.

5.0 out of 5 stars How should religious people/organizations influence others?, May 27, 2001
In my opinion, our society will not progress without a better understanding of this subject. Carter's book is the best guide that I have found. Carter's religion undoubtedly influences his beliefs, but he diligently seeks the truth. This book is a must read for those who are interested in helping others more than themselves.
