Whitehead applies his razor-sharp thinking to the question, "How did our culture get into the dismal moral and cultural state it is in today?" He provides a fascinating sketch of 20th-century culture, clearly showing how the artists and culture-makers influenced the philosophical and moral climate of the world today. Skillfully synthesizing major philosophical movements of the century, he places cultural heroes into a larger context of truth and morality.
