I really strive to take a pragmatic approach to lie...which doesn't always sit well people. Unfortunately bias exists on both sides of most arguments, and this book tries to examine them in a pragmatic way. In this, the author succeeds. I really found myself (as well as my beliefs) thoroughly challenged. I just began a second read-through of the book, as well. I'd like to get as much out of this as I can. Overall, the book is very well written and reasoned. The author also writes in a way that isn't too complicated or "heady" for the everyman reader. I highly recommend this book.

Religion and science take center stage in "DELUSIONS - Pragmatic Realism." I have read other amazing works from Stanislaw Kapuscinski and was in search of yet another one his epic books to sink my teeth into over the weekend. Just like the others, I was swept away in a wonderful fashion.

The most intriguing question that I found to resonate most when reading this book are the arguments surrounding God and the Space around us, what is really our true reality?

There are two sides to every situation in life. From the science perspective we find theories that have been taught about over the ages and yet still have not come into reality. Also from a religious standpoint discussions dealing with the existence of God, what beliefs are true and not are being told to us time and time again. At the end of the day, the more we search for answers, the closer we are to finding the truth. Far and away the questions discussed in this book will keep you pondering the true essence of life well after you are done reading.

Author Stanislaw Kapuscinski has proven yet again to be an intellectual master. "DELUSIONS - Pragmatic Realism" is a well thought out, well-written masterpiece filled with enough facts that bring both Science and Religion into account. The book is also written tactfully, with enough sarcasm and humor that made it entertaining and above all informative. It will surely last the same time.

In short Stanislaw Kapuscinski exposes DELUSIONS on both sides of the coin. I will definitely look for more books from one of the best authors in the writing world today!

Stanislaw Kapuscinski's "DELUSIONS - Pragmatic Realism" is a book about reconciling the scientific and religious desires of humanity. The book is, in essence, a response to Richard Dawkins' "God Delusion," which Kapuscinski asserts unjustly deals with spirituality, myths, and religion. Kapuscinski feels that Dawkins, in "God Delusion," spent too much time focusing on those who had used religious teachings to distort, rather than spending time analyzing religious teachers who had used religion and myths for the beneift of others. "DELUSIONS" approaches the alleged contrast between science and religion by going back to the basics -- such as defining religion, which means to reconnect. Already, Kapuscinski has discovered a fundamental problem with Dawkin's attack on religion -- it is done without knowing what spiritual and religious people are "reconnecting" to. Kapuscinski then offers his reconciliation of religion and science -- pragmatic realism. Pragmatic realism uses only assumptions that are practical in our interpretation of reality and ideas that are testable. Kapuscinski then analyzes ideas from ancient philosophers and myths that could be classified as pragmatic realism. You can tell Kapuscinski spent much time researching the topics for this this book, and there are many references to original texts. This book definitely opened my mind to a different way of thinking. If you're interested in a solution to the contrast between religion and science, this book is worth checking out!

I'm back with another review of Mr Kapuscinski's work. This time, he takes on the noble task of proving that modern science, for the most part, is merely conjecture too (much like the way Richard Dawkins criticized religion), and is not as much written in stone as scientists would like you to believe. I kind of knew that already, but it's interesting to see someone actually boldly stating it in a book like this. It makes me realize once more that each of us has their own way of learning about the world, and each of us truly lives in a different world. It's all in the eye of the beholder. You shouldn't adhere to the tenets of religion or blindly follow sciencists in order to find 'the truth', in fact, there is no 'THE truth'.

Again, a winner from a very deep thinker and brave author, who takes on and discusses the things that nobody else dares touch, questions our dearest beliefs, and does it all so respectfully that it never sounds scathing, hyper-critical or like he's just out to ridicule people (which is what I always feel Mr Dawkins is doing too much, in my humble opinion).

I never placed much faith in religion. Now, thanks to Kapuscinski, I have considerable doubts about science as well. His Pragmatic Realism made me revise my view of the world placing much more weight in my own judgment. For this I must thank the author. He freed me from the fundamentalists on both sides of the equation.
