In Architects of the Culture of Death, collaborative authors Donald de Marco (Professor of Philosophy at St. Jerome's College) and Benjamin Wiker (Lecturer in Science and Theology at Franciscan University) provide a clear definition of the concept "Culture of Death" which has become a both a popular phrase in national political and cultural dialogue, as well as academic circles. Architects Of The Culture Of Death provides an informed and informative delineation of the mindsets of twenty-three influential thinkers ranging from Ayn Rand, Charles Darwin, and Karl Marx, to Jean-Paul Sarte, Simone de Beauvoir, and Jack Kevorkian. Highly recommended reading for students of philosophy and theology, the authors offer an understanding and restoration of the human being as a person and the rediscover of a benevolent God arising from the concept of "Personalism" as articulated by John Paul II, and appropriately serving as a hopeful antidote for the stark pessimism that has issues from the originators of the "culture of death" perspective in contemporary human affairs.
