Can't help not to enjoy a good criticism of positivism and humanism with additional insight into the relevant historical context.
On the other hand, the book was somewhat difficult to follow due to a ridiculously bad translation and even worse grammatical and spelling fails in this puzzling symbiosis of Serbian and Croatian. Anyone reading the edition by SHURA publikacije, Opatija, 2014, heads up. My very favorite was "bihejviorizam".

Oh, bihejv.
