Mariano Fazio
Following the thread of the secularization process and from a Christian consideration of man and history, the author presents the keys to modernity (XVI-XVIII ct.) and thus explores the main contemporary ideologies –Liberalism, Nationalism, Marxism, and Scientism– and highlights their role as substitute religions. The third part of the book deals with the crisis in the culture of Modernity in the twentieth century and so examines in detail Nihilism, permissive societies, and those cultural movements that are most fashionable: Feminism, Environmentalism, or new religious movements.
