Loewen provides an enthralling discussion of the conceits of
humanity in the modern day in
Becoming a Modest Society.
sequel to his fascinating analysis of religion and science,
What is God?, Loewen
proceeds to ask the major question implicit in this previous
work: What then is Human?
responses take us on a journey from what has been human in the
past to what we are today, and allows us to confront some of our
favorite conceptual confusions, such as those between morals and
ethics, modesty and humility, and criticism and critique amongst
many others. Along the way, he defends Wal-Mart, analyses the
Dixie Chicks, suggests we temporarily stop having children while
also questioning our motives regarding their nascent sexuality,
and tells us how we can share the consciousness of another in
the reader with both philosophical and personal narrative,
A Modest Society is
a must read for all those concerned with not only the current
state of social relations, but of humanity itself.
