New Book on Theoretical Source of Religious Concepts
Greenwood, IN – A new book by Robert Villegas offers a new perspective on religion that identifies the prehistorical sources of mainline religions and offers a new understanding about how man can negotiate for freedom.
“When an entrenched, anti-reason culture is presented with new ideas that challenge its fundamental premises, it relies on the power of what is taken as knowledge in order to defend itself. Indeed, when corrupt ideas are accepted as knowledge, as firm, people will not readily accept new, better ideas. In fact, those new ideas will be seen as false by many people because the entrenched ideas have a feeling of being obvious. As I will show, rationalism, faith and collectivism will take on the power of a self-imposed cultural dictatorship, a non-reception system that blocks new ideas and prevents them from coming to the fore. In this book we will explore a new field called pre-philosophy which emerged out of pre-historical times to become religion and modern philosophy.”
This book identifies three “role paradigms” that emerged from man’s distant past to provide the foundation for some of history’s most harmful modern role paradigms. The analysis concludes that these paradigms are responsible for the entrenched ideas that are blocking human progress. Of particular interest is the impact that these religious paradigms had on modern philosophy and secular society.
