[Extract] John Carroll's Humanism is a book about faith. It is about faith in a religious sense and in a moral sense, and about the dissolution of the bonds of faith in the half-millennium it has taken Modernity to develop. Faith is what sustains a culture, and culture is the only thing that stands between us and chaos, between us and the demons. Carroll's book is about what happens when people lose faith in their culture, and the paralyzing consequences of that. It describes the burden of men and women without faith in anything.
