How did we get from there to here? From a green planet to a dying one? From sacred to sarcasm. Nasr provides a very clear and erudite analysis of modern thought, dismantling it so that we may have hopes of putting the pieces of the puzzle back together for ourselves and for the sake of the rest of the biosphere. Modern philosophical thoughts and their detriments are examined concisely but thoroughly. A must read for anyone who wishes to begin to understand what's really wrong at the heart of Modernity.
