Rezension:

I would not wish to have missed The Age of Nothing by Peter Watson, a brisk 565 pages on the displacement of God from Western Culture. (TOM STOPPARD TLS - BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2014)

his erudition is formidable (THEODORE DALRYMPLE THE TIMES)

In a vividly engaging conspectus of the formative ideas of the past century, The Age of Nothing shows how Nietzsche's diagnosis evoked responses in may areas of cultural life, including some surprising parts of the political spectrum. (John Gray NEW STATESMAN)

I recommend this book to anyone who needs to know what the loss of religious faith has meant to the high culture of our civilsation and what, if anything, we might do about it.... (it) covers a whole century of intellectual endeavour as lightly as it can. (ROGER SCRUTON THE INDEPENDENT)

The beauty of this book is Watson's ability to impose order on a riot of ideas. ( PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY)

This book will appeal to anyone with intellectual curiosity about the human condition and the development of ideas. It will especially appeal to the non-religious reader. This isn't a book about, or even particularly in defence of atheism as a worldview, but it sets out objectively a history of non-religious thought that covers everything from science to poetry, incorporating philosophy, the rise of new age 'spiritualism' and therapy. (GREG JAMESON ENTERTAINMENT FOCUS)
