Great freethinkers: selected quotations by famous skeptics & nonconformists
Grouped into categories that range from religion and psychology to sex and politics, the 1,000 quotations by the world's great iconoclasts and skeptics collected in this volume challenge conventional notions of god, country, science, art, society, and culture. In eclectic harmony, the words of cynics Mark Twain, Ambrose Bierce, and H. L. Mencken counterbalance those of idealists Ralph Waldo Emerson, Albert Einstein, and Jane Addams. Utopians Emma Goldman and Che Guevara contrast with anti-utopians George Orwell and Albert Camus. Individualists contend with egalitarians as do deists with atheists in these thought-provoking quotations that have been carefully selected from a broad range of writings and chosen on the basis of their wit, eloquence, novelty, and incisiveness.
