The slow ascent of Man to a life of reason is best portrayed by examining the long history of secularization which religion has provoked in every age. It is customary to assume that secular attitudes are a recent development and that religion ruled unchallenged in "the past". This is not so. Dr. Falk's book serves to show that even the most ancient writings now extant indicate that religion always had its opponents and that opposition to religion, at least in Western Civilization, was particularly strong in ancient Greece among the pre-Socratic "lovers of wisdom".
