    In Search Of Civilization: Remaking A Tarnished Idea

    By: John Armstrong

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    What is civilization?
    Why do we need it?
    And what can civilization offer us in an age of irony?

    The idea of civilization is a complex one, tangled up for years in ideas of colonialism and politics. John Armstrong explores the nature and aims of civilization in this elegant and witty book, examining how civilizing forces from the Greeks to the Renaissance have shaped and coloured our ideas of what a Good existence means. Only by bringing conversations about civilization back into our everyday lives, Armstrong reveals, can we rediscover our chance for wisdom and happiness.
