Ross Beinhaker's The Modern Testament ranks as one of the most important philosophical works of the 21st century. Shedding the rigid, academic systems of Post-Kantian philosophers, Beinhaker instead focuses on a "living philosophy that explains the wisdoms of life through a pragmatic framework". This living philosophy concentrates on nothing but impacting the individual's life--on finding greatness and satisfaction in the world.
The Modern Testament casts new light on many everyday societal concepts. Beauty, reputation, wealth, position, and power are all philosophically explored so that the individual may improve his own life in society. Solitude, philosophy, war, and art are then discussed to allow the individual to improve his own life as an individual. All of these concepts are investigated according to the precepts of a living philosophy.
In the end, The Modern Testament provides a roadmap to allow individuals to live a richer life. The twists and turns of this journey reveal a number of surprising insights, demonstrating that many people are living in the wrong manner. In order to become enlightened, to find greatness and satisfaction, and to live better, the individual should take the first step and read this work.
