About this item



Translated by Rebecca Vitz Cherico

The Tragedy of Modern Man

In world of constant "progress,"The Silence of God reminds us of the importance of the permanent things.

In this wise and engaging book, the eminent Spanish philosopher Rafael Gambra chronicles the destructive effects of progressivism on human society. He demonstrates how the technological advances of the past five hundred years have given man a false sense of mastery?and a false sense that the traditional structures that reconciled man with his surroundings and his mortality are now obsolete. That is to say, in striving toward technological and material progress, people are losing a sense of the eternal.

Originally published in 1967, The Silence of God is more relevant than ever as a critique of the limits of modern culture. Drawing on a vast literary, philosophical, and political tradition, Gambra explores the roots of cultural decline and examines what is needed to bring about renewal.

ISI Books is proud to present the first English translation of this profound and important reflection on modern society. The latest entry in ISI’s acclaimed Crosscurrents series, The Silence of God calls us to rebuild a culture that attends to the deepest needs of the human person.
