Recommended for: those interested in the development of the modern psyche
Read in February, 2008

While it is clear that at times Ellul has no bloody clue what he's talking about in a factual sense, his ideas are intriguing. The proposed chicken-and-egg quandary is especially engaging--as one begins to read more they are compelled to examine their current situation. How much does propaganda effect us? To what extent is thought genuinely independent? Philosophic questions with a spin.

One certainly starts to look at things a little differently after being exposed to the ideas presented here.
