"A modern philosopher who has never experienced the feeling of being a charlatan is such a shallow mind that his work is probably not worth reading". So begins Kolakowski's courageous assault on the conventional wisdom of modern scientific philosophy. Against the current of contemporary materialism, this book defends the spiritual dimension of experience.
