Through extensive textual analysis, this book concludes that the prevailing opinion about the nature of modern and contemporary philosophy is wrong. It maintains that almost all modern and contemporary philosophy is deconstructed, secularized, Augustinian theology, not philosophy. The work is divided into eight chapters, a guest Foreword by Herbert I. London (President of the Hudson Institute and Olin Professor of Humanities at New York University) notes, bibliography, and an index. Chapter 1 (Protagoras Sees the Ghost of Hippo) considers Cartesian thought, Hobbes, and Newton. Chapter 2 (I Feel the Spirit Move Me) examines Locke, Berkeley, and Hume. Chapter 3 (The Urge to Emerge) investigates Lessing and Rousseau. Chapters 4 (To Dream the Impossible Dream) and 5 (Wake Up, Wake Up, You Sleepyhead) treat Kant. Chapters 6 (I Am Music) and 7 (Looking for God in All The Wrong Places) deal with Hegel. Chapter 8 (Dirty Dancing: Higher Education as Enlightened Swindling) concludes that a lack of philosophical and historical experience coupled with a widespread inability to read philosophical texts according to the intention of the author (1) causes us to mistake secularized theology for philosophy and (2) is a main cause for the decline of contemporary universities.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Not even the subtitle of this work hints at its richness... To open this book is to be captivated by Redpath's unconventional view of modernity. One put it down with the conviction that one has encountered a profound thinker at work..." - Jude P. Dougherty, in: The Review of Metaphysics 52:4, June 1999 "... In the second and third volumes, Wisdom's Odyssey: From Philosophy to Transcendental Sophistry and Masquerade of the Dream Walkers: Prophetic Theology from the Cartesians to Hegel, Redpath fills in the historical outline he traced out in the first volume with amazing scope, erudition, and power." - Thaddeus J. Kozinski, in: The Review of Metaphysics 52:4, June 1999
