What have we learned? Seriously!

by DominicK on Feb 2, 2008

The author brought out prespectives on where America is. It's a perspective that I view negative to the future of filling of the soul. Where one would agree with Niesche, that God is dead. With disagreement that, God lives; supported by, and on how society is viewed. It's a perspective that I seen in and on how a structure is based upon faith and action. Characterizing society as shallow; knocking students down a level. Where the authors strongest example is of what the professor is filling the student up with. Never showing direction on where it was thought of through out the book. Waiting, waiting, waiting, was my soul; to learn by his observations. I wondered where the author stood; stating on where things are learnt and tought. The author gave a wandering view and into the sad state of ever finishing such a book.
