The book in review is a brilliant critique. A touching dedication in memoriam to Charlie Hebdo (p.ix) reminds me of the infamous 9/11 when I was conducting a doctoral seminar in 326, HPL building. An ominous feeling overwhelmed my consciousness and I told the kids, “It’s the end of free society”. Professor Hermann has delivered a penetrating critique of modernity and the mainstream theories and facts of life that perpetuate euphemisms of progress.
