This book is valuable in that it is a good overall review of various arguments against materialism and scientism that seems so well established and anchored in our modern world view. This book will help start ripping out those deep dry roots. A new dimension and view of reality will start opening up and you will see that your concept of reality has been so limited by modern science and that existence is much more profound and mysterious than the materialist philosophy conveyed to you in school and popular culture. You can skip around and read on various subjects. Some of the chapters are excellent and its a good introduction to the various authors that champion the traditionalist philosophy and metaphysics.
