In this delightfully lucid and accessible book, Mortimer J. Alder, America's foremost philosopher, explores the ten errors of the development of the modern thought, and examines the serious consequences they have in our everyday lives. From the mistake of identifying happiness with having a good time to the argument over free will and free choice, Alder explains how these errors came about and what we can do to avoid them."
Dr. Mortimer J. Adler was Chairman of the Board of the Encyclopedia Britannica, Director of the Institute for Philosophical Research, Honorary Trustee of the Aspen Institute, and authored more than fifty books. He died in 2001.
