Publisher's Summary

From Philosophy to Technology, Tracing the Origin of Identity Politics

How did the world arrive at its current, disorienting state of identity politics, and how should the church respond? Historian Carl R. Trueman discusses how influences ranging from traditional institutions to technology and pornography moved modern culture toward an era of “expressive individualism.” Investigating philosophies from the Romantics, Nietzsche, Marx, Wilde, Freud, and the New Left, he outlines the history of Western thought to the distinctly sexual direction of present-day identity politics and explains the modern implications of these ideas on religion, free speech, and personal identity. 

For fans of Trueman’s The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self, this audiobook offers a more concise presentation and application of some of the most critical topics of our day. Individuals and groups can work through the book together with the Strange New World Study Guide and Strange New World Video Study, sold separately.

Book of the year as far as I am concerned!

No wonder people don't want to discuss these things. They declare what they want and cannot imagine any legitimate limits. They take it personally if you don't agree and support them.

Does the news make you feel crazy?

Buy this book and let what you learn fascinate and explain a good bit of how the world (and many people) are acting and talking like crazy-people.

A masterful synopsis of modern perceived self

Great follow-up

Great follow-up to 'The Rise & Triumph of the Modern Self.' This felt like a greater and more pointed distillation of that book and maybe could serve as a helpful primer of sorts but can still stand on its own and pack a punch. Wonderfully written and always appreciated when the author narrates his own books.

A very well researched and accessible guide in understanding the strange new [modern\post-modern] world we live in without having to wade through more difficult thinkers like Charles Taylor or Philip Reif.

Thorough, Concise, Accessible

Felt like my History and English degrees got crammed into a five-hour book! Makes me want to read my favorite literary heroes all over again.

Deferential but still provocative

This book does a good job of explaining why "Hate the sin, love the sinner" is no longer said. This book is very deferential to both Roman Catholicism and Reformed theology, conflicts between the two are not mentioned.

History of Sexual Identity

This book has helped me to understand the origins of identity categories of LGBTQ+. It has given me material to work with, think about and reflect upon when trying to understand this strange new world. I like the way the author approaches and tackles the subject and one can tell a lot of research and deep Christian thinking is behind this work. This book will be useful for people of all faiths in trying to understand this topic.
