AUTHOR

Hentsch, Thierry, Reed, Fred A.

SUMMARY

In the tradition of James Frazer, Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell, Thierry Hentsch retells, with new urgency, "the story of the West" that shapes our perception of the world through a critical reading of its most seminal texts: from Ulysses to Hamlet, from the Torah to the Gospels, from Plato to Descartes. Just as the Christian message of immortality is found to be conditional, so Western civilization, while offering the universal promise of salvation here on earth--by replacing God with technoscience--nonetheless imposes its own absolute morality on the world.Hentsch, Thierry is the author of 'Truth Or Death The Quest For Immortality In The Western Narrative Tradition', published 2004 under ISBN 9780889225091 and ISBN 0889225095.
