      I loved it. It was a dose of philosophy for the distracted and is the kind of book I won't have any problem lending, rereading, and talking about. It summarizes exactly what was "wrong" with my college education, and I plan to gift this to every graduate in the future. Even though it's Catholic, I'd recommend it for anyone--the truths it points to are universal. Highly recommended.

      If only I had read this when I started college. I used Best Things in Life and The Journey: A Spiritual Roadmap for Modern Pilgrims (which are fantastic and hardly 'making do'), but this covers even more topics that I'd never understood as 'isms, though that's clearly what they are.Young readers without a background in philosophy will need to go slowly, and it would be even better if they could be guided in a group study by someone who can answer their questions. However, even if they don't unde [...]

      I think my college career might have been far different had I read this book-- but that of course would have required time travel. I'm sure Disorientation was created to prevent the loss of faith and poor moral choices that so often mark the college years of previously devout teenagers. This book consists of 14 topical essays with an introductory and concluding essay by editor Zmirak. Each essay spotlights an "ism" common to the university environment: Sentimentalism, relativism, hedonism, progr [...]

      I didn't finish this book, and I'm not going to give a full review of it because it covers too difficult of topics that I don't want to go into. However, I will say why I was unable to finish it: the book seemed a little over the top. The introduction claims that "none of these ideologies is completely 100 percent wrong," but then the book seems to not specify what about these ideologies could be right. That was my main problem. The book was too negative. I get what it was trying to say, but I c [...]

      This book is directed to high school students (9-12 grades), but it is highly recommended for people of all ages. Each chapter is written by a different individual (philosophers, theologians, sociologists, psychologists, speakers, etc) who each give an insight into a prevalent ideology of our time. Each of the ideologies present a world view that have certain truths and half-truths, and the value of this book comes from how each author is able to convey the dangers of taking any one of these ide [...]

      A series of essays looking at current philosophical trends that drive modern society and that can send a faithful Catholic off the rails if not identified. This is directed at college students.This was quite good and should not be confined to college students. My review will go up next week and I'll link then.

      I must confess I wish I had read this book when I was just starting out either on my own intellectual adventures or at least when I started college, how much time I could have saved! Luckily, I am still relatively young and having once been immersed in the cultural and philosophical Zietgiest [Spirit of the Age] I can say with confidence that this book is probably the best go to book for any young adult to read or to be given the opportunity to read as they go into college, especially if they wi [...]
