A Twentieth-Century Collision by Peter M. Collins
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book explores 20th-century intellectual culture in the United States, with attention to the gradual narrowing of the scope of (academic) philosophy and its diminishing influence. American Catholic universities, it is contended in this book, can render a seriously-needed contribution to combating the negative effects of this historical development.
