10 Books That Screwed Up the World: And 5 Others That Didn't Help por Benjamin Wiker Libro PDF, EPUB

You've heard of the "Great Books"? These are their evil opposites. From Machiavelli's The Prince to Karl Marx's The Communist Manifesto to Alfred Kinsey's Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, these "influential" books have led to war, genocide, totalitarian oppression, family breakdown, and disastrous social experiments. And yet these author's bad ideas are still popular and You've heard of the "Great Books"? These are their evil opposites. From Machiavelli's The Prince to Karl Marx's The Communist Manifesto to Alfred Kinsey's Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, these "influential" books have led to war, genocide, totalitarian oppression, family breakdown, and disastrous social experiments. And yet these author's bad ideas are still popular and pervasive-in fact, they might influence your own thinking without your realizing it. Here with the antidote is Professor Benjamin Wiker. In his scintillating new book, 10 Books That Screwed Up the World (And 5 Others That Didn't Help), he seizes each of these evil books by its malignant heart and exposes it to the light of day. In this witty, learned, and provocative exposé, you'll learn: Why Machiavelli's The Prince was the inspiration for a long list of tyrannies (Stalin had it on his nightstand) How Descarte's Discourse on Method "proved" God's existence only by making Him a creation of our own ego How Hobbe's Leviathan led to the belief that we have a "right" to whatever we want Why Marx and Engels's Communist Manifesto could win the award for the most malicious book ever written How Darwin's The Descent of Man proves he intended "survival of the fittest" to be applied to human society How Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil issued the call for a world ruled solely by the "will to power" How Hitler's Mein Kampf was a kind of "spiritualized Darwinism" that accounts for his genocidal anti-Semitism How the pansexual paradise described in Margaret Mead's Coming of Age in Samoa turned out to be a creation of her own sexual confusions and aspirations Why Alfred Kinsey's Sexual Behavior in the Human Male was simply autobiography masquerading as science Witty, shocking, and instructive, 10 Books That Screwed Up the World offers a quick education on the worst ideas in human history-and how we can avoid them in the future.
