Down From the Ivory Tower

Neven Sesardic has written an unfortunate history of modern philosophy. That’s not to say When Reason Goes on Holiday is a bad book, although the prose is nothing to write home about. It’s not even to say that Sesardic has his facts wrong, since he doesn’t, for the most part. No, the publication of When Reason Goes on Holiday is an unhappy occasion primarily because of the moment in which it appears.
