F. Baum, whose work has been applauded by thinkers as diverse as Sir Karl Popper and the late P. A. Sorokin, provides critical assessments of Darwinism, Marxism, and Freudianism in the light of empirical fact and logic. So doing, Baum uncovers in their propositions a denigration of mind and reason that undercuts the same propositions claims to rationality and truth. Baum traces this irrationalism to Darwins, Marxs, and Freuds common naturalism or atheism. Pointing out, perhaps to the readers surprise, that what is most convincing in Darwinism, Marxism, and Freudianism was anticipated long ago in the teaching of Doctors of the Church, Baums conclusion argues briefly for reconsideration of non-sectarian theism.

A substatial contribution to this generations re-thinking of fundamental issues, Doctors of Modernity will prove invaluable to college students and reflective adults.
