Sinopse

Who rules the modern world? A spirit of reason and independence? Authorities say yes—history disagrees. Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci witnessed the birth of a radically different spirit. Newton, Bacon, and Locke tapped into its world-shaping power. Enlightenment philosophers came to know its liberating potential. American revolutionaries were stirred into action by this contrary force. Nineteenth century superstars, such as Darwin or Nietzsche, attest to its progressive operation. And today, this enigmatic entity is as active as ever. It seems to perform brilliantly in the atheistic hardliner Richard Dawkins—to maintain what is undoubtedly the world’s most sophisticated delusion. Is this hidden operator hostile or benign? This fast-paced introductory volume provides an unsuspected answer.
