Transcendent, but still flawed.

(5 stars)

His conceptions of the linearity of progress are contradictory to the way he disregards nearly two centuries of religious tradition in order to rediscover the kernel of truth at it's foundation. That is not to say that this journey is not still worthwhile to go on, however living in a time and place that is no less barbarous now than it was back then makes this precept of linear progress hard to swallow with the rest.

Good book, I enjoyed most of it . My guess is Leo had not live long enough to experienced the Russian revolution. Even though he advocated the theory of peacefully civil disobedience as way to obtained freedom and democracy, but history shown his theory is a flawed.

Good reflections, especially if christian
