Overview

Based on his recent philosophy degree course at the University of Durham, novelist, screenwriter, and ex-Navy pilot Charles Gidley Wheeler provides a clear, concise, and comprehensive overview of Western philosophy, its relation to science and logic, and its application to personal, social, and political dilemmas of the twenty-first century. Starting from the premise that nothingness cannot exist, the author shows how both physics and philosophy seem to be leading us to the unavoidable conclusion that to think in terms of an absolute God who has the power to reward or punish us is not only irrational but divisive and dangerous to the survival of mankind. The important conclusion of the book is that until it is universally accepted that we are all one and that to injure others is to injure ourselves, wars; conflict; and terrorism will inevitably continue.
