For centuries, humanistic philosophers have produced an endless array of books and treatises that attempt rationalize man and his thought processes without acknowledging God, the mediatory work of Jesus, or man’s sin. God holds all such efforts in derision and subjects their authors and adherents to futility. Philosophers who rebel against God are compelled to abandon meaning itself, for they possess neither the tools nor the place to anchor it.
In The Death of Meaning, Rushdoony clearly articulates each major philosopher’s position and its implications, identifying the intellectual and moral consequences of each school of thought and tracing the dead end to which each naturally leads. This penetrating volume provides clear guidance, even for laymen unfamiliar with philosophy.
With the Logos edition of the The Death of Meaning you can take advantage of extensive linking, advanced search functions, and a myriad of other powerful tools. Accessing commentaries, topical studies, and theological studies in your digital library is now easier than ever!

About Rousas John Rushdoony
Rousas John Rushdoony (1916–2001) was a well-known American scholar, the author of more than 30 books. He held BA and MA degrees from the University of California and received his theological training at the Pacific School of Religion. An ordained minister, he worked as a missionary among Paiute and Shoshone Indians and as a pastor to two California churches. He founded the Chalcedon Foundation, an educational organization devoted to research, publishing, and cogent communication of a distinctively Christian scholarship to the world at large. His writing in the Chalcedon Report and his numerous books inspired a generation of believers to be active in reconstructing the world to the glory of Jesus Christ. Until his death, he resided in Vallecito, California, where he engaged in research, lecturing, and assisting others in developing programs to put faith into action.
