HERBERT LONDON is President Emeritus of Hudson Institute. He served as the Institute’s President from December 1997 to March 2011. He is professor emeritus and the former John M. Olin Professor of Humanities at New York University. London was responsible for creating the Gallatin School of Individualized Study in 1972 and was its dean until 1992. This school was organized to promote the study of “great books” and classic texts.
In this timely and wide-ranging book, one of America’s leading public intellectuals explores the rise of radical secular humanism as a religious experience. London shows that while secular humanism has it’s saints, sinners, and even its quasi-religious rituals, it is too anemic and self-centered a philosophy of life to serve America and the West in its battle against the threat of radical Islam.
