The Philosophy of Commonsense: A Cultural War Primer

Front Cover
Barry L. Clark, Nov 17, 2019 - Philosophy - 194 pages

A presentation of an assertion that common-sense exists because first principles, natural moral law, and universal truths exist. Common-sense has served as a guide and a protection from ill-considered ideas and inflamed passions throughout history. It can guide us now through our current cultural war.


Through an examination of the Strauss-Howe generational theory, the outcomes of past periods of history similar to our own era the book proposes that common-sense and the lessons our ancestors can teach us will be key in the solutions our children someday craft to resolve current issues.


This book is important for parents to remind us of the knowledge we received from our parents and grandparents that we should pass along to our children.


It is important for our children to help them understand that truth does exist and not everything from the past should be discarded willy-nilly.
