Clio's Bastards: Or, the Wrecking of History and the Perversion of Our Historical Consciousness

Availability: Ready to download

Clio’s Bastards uses an examination of the discipline of history in Canadian universities as the point of entry for a much larger exploration of the intellectual, spiritual, and moral crisis confronting Western civilization today. Over the past four decades, academic history was slowly perverted as historians adopted new sociological approaches to the study of the past. Hi Clio’s Bastards uses an examination of the discipline of history in Canadian universities as the point of entry for a much larger exploration of the intellectual, spiritual, and moral crisis confronting Western civilization today. Over the past four decades, academic history was slowly perverted as historians adopted new sociological approaches to the study of the past. Historians altered the content, purpose, and goals of the discipline as they sought not Truth but Justice as part of a larger ideological program of radical social change. And today, the pervasive sociological way of seeing, understanding, and explaining our world has become the “new common sense” right across the Western world, both inside and outside the academy. Sociological thought, however, is neither “new” nor “advanced” nor is it “progressive” as its adherents claim: it is simply recrudescent Sophistry and Cynicism, destructive philosophies which ruined and fouled ancient Athens, the source and inspiration for Western civilization.

    This is a book about history, about the way we view and teach history. Love the writing style - authoritative but still inviting... The ending chapters display what is happening to democracy in North America right now... the slow, downhill slide into political correctness, which really isn't correct. The postscript at the end offers a thought, a possible way out or through our decline. This is a book about history, about the way we view and teach history.
