But students of religion and philosophy also have much to learn from this volume, for it includes a trenchant analysis of gnostic modernity based on the author's careful reading of C.S. Lewis, George Grant and Eric Voegelin.” - Lawrence E. Schmidt, quoted on the back cover. George Parkin Grant (1918-1988) was a Canadian philosopher, teacher and political commentator, whose popular appeal peaked in the late 1960s and 1970s. He is bestknown for his nationalism, political conservatism, comments on technology, pacifism, Christian faith, and conservative views regarding abortion and i s credited as one of Canada's most original thinkers. Grant was a faculty member at Dalhousie University, Halifax, N.S., twice (1947-1960, 1980-1988).Very good, with erratum sheet (page 123)laid in.
