Reviews

"This perspicacious, elegant text was first published in 1973, partly in response to the disruptive posturing of the radical students of that era, as the new introduction to the Transaction edition admits in its opening lines. As with Kenneth Minogue's other books, the text contains much enlightenment, and manifests a pleasing absence of pomposity or condescension. The conceptual terrain is vast, ranging across history and politics as well as philosophy, rendering any chosen explanatory mode problematic in the extreme...Minogue offers us a fascinating account of the uneasy but fertile interchanges between academic inquiry and religion." --Dennis O'Keeffe, The Salisbury Review
