Summary, etc Throughout history the human race has sought the answers to fundamental questions of life: Who are we? Why are we here? The author asserts that western culture has seen three types of 'seeking'. First there was the heroic way of prophets and philosophers - Moses or Job or Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, as well as those in the communities of the early church universities and the Protestant Reformation - seeking salvation or truth from the god above or human reason. Then came an age of communal seeking, with Thucydides, Thomas More, Machiavelli and Voltaire pursuing civilization and the liberal spirit. Finally, there was an age of the social sciences, when man seemed ruled by the forces of history. Here are the absorbing stories of Marx, Spengler, Toynbee, Carlyle, Emerson, Malraux, Bergson, and Einstein. These great thinkers still have the power to speak to us, not always so much for their answers as for their way of asking the questions that remain relevant.
