This book is written for the basic reader--it can be followed by anyone with a high school education. Yet this book leads itself to multiple readings to deepen one's understanding of good philosophy. The myth about the backward ancients is nicely refuted and at the same time modern science is affirmed. This is a needed treatise on this integration. This author draws upon Gilson, Maritain, Aquinas, Aristotle, Adler--realist philosophers who have broad perspectives. It is refreshing to learn how to refute skepticism and idealism and get to the Real. This perspective is the misssing element in science and it is good to find a way to eliminate the supposed war between science and philosophy. This is a must read for all scientists who deep down want the truth in all its deep manifestations.
Dr. Rizzi is not only a brilliant phyisicist, but also an outstanding philosopher. His book gives us the philosophical tools which help us answer these questions, tools which help us to see clearly that we can know truth, objectively. He dispells the myth relativism as it appears in all fields of science, from morality and ethics to physics.
I would also add that his book is written in such a way that it is very accessible to general audiences. I recommend it highly.
