Dialogues In Limbo by George Santayana

By George Santayana

Атеист и скептик, американский философ Джордж Сантаяна (1863 – 1952) в этой книге с присущей ему язвительностью развенчивает догматы христианства, показывая, что все религии суть лишь воплощения естественной потребности человека поэтизировать реальность. Философия, по его мнению, тоже сродни и религии, и искусству – она не решает никаких проблем и не делает никаких открытий и является лишь самовыражением того, кто ею занимается.
Для философов, историков философии, религиоведов.
