Goodreads Review of The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self by Carl Trueman

The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self: Cultural Amnesia, Expressive Individualism, and the Road to Sexual RevolutionThe Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self: Cultural Amnesia, Expressive Individualism, and the Road to Sexual Revolution by Carl R. Trueman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Phenomenal. One of the best books I’ve read in the last few years. This book serves as a prolegomenon to engaging and navigating our current culture by way of a historical-philosophical explanation of how we got here. This book connected a lot of dots for me in my own understanding of our contemporary society. Very, very helpful. A technical subject matter. But Carl Trueman is a fantastic writer. He makes it easy to follow his argument and is enjoyable to read.
