Farewell to Reason
by Paul Feyerabend
A healthy antidote, perhaps, for those who get too hung up on rationality and scientism as the only measure of meaning or human existence. A vigorous challenge to the assumptions underlying Western ideals of "progress" and "development." Whether discussing Greek art, vindicating the Church against Galileo, or exploring the dogmatism of scientific theories, presents a provocative case that for all to enjoy real benefit, science needs to be subordinated more to human and communal needs.
"An audacious thinker, a brilliant polemicist, an iconoclast."
     -- Publishers Weekly

"This is a lovely book. Feyerabend's prose is sparkling and his writing is deeply learned."
     -- New Statesman
