    Reviews: “This book makes a probing argument with the same clarity the ancient Greeks were known to present their philosophical insights: from the nineteenth century onwards the West has witnessed an inversion of values from noble to base values. The very same period hailed as “progressive” by our current liberal elites is to Thomas Martin the era when Westerners abandoned their dedication to high cultural accomplishments in the name of cultural equality across all ethnic groups and classes. With the abandonment of the aristocratic elitism of the past, the worst side of our human nature has been given free reign, and, what is worse, this has happened right inside our universities through the promotion of political correctness and diversity.” — Dr. Ricardo Duchesne, author of The Uniqueness of Western Civilization. “For the select few who appreciate a masterful weaving of history, philosophy and the arts (from grand opera to the movies) the book is a tour de force. Reading it is like a... More > return to college. For those concerned about the state of modern life, it is a must read.” — Robert Weissberg, Professor of Political Science, New York University. “Modern sleep and dream science teaches us, as does The Victory of Mind that all human activity, including art and politics are products of the human brain and that each of us has the privilege and responsibility of using it actively and communicating its creations.” — Dr. J. Allan Hobson, Professor of Psychiatry, Emeritus, Harvard Medical School, author of Dreaming: An Introduction to the Science of Sleep (Oxford University Press, 2004). “Thomas Martin might as well have added the subtitle to his book “The Changing Nature of Western Symbolism.” The author focuses on the shifts in the meanings of Western symbols, be they of ethical or aesthetical nature, and he explains their different interpretations within different socio-political epochs. Backed by solid bibliography and numerous quotations from classics, the book is a valuable source in understanding the deliberate sliding of the Western man into his own self-destruction. The Western man’s obsession with the feelings of guilt and self-hate, which the author depicts in a very succinct manner, might qualify his book as a short sequel to Spengler’s and Toynbee’s premonitions of the final death of the West.” — Dr. Tom Sunic, Author of Postmortem Report: Cultural Examinations from Postmodernity.< Less
