Quasi-religions : humanism, Marxism, and nationalism by John E Smith( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The growing secularisation of many societies has led to the proliferation of quasi-religions that seek to replace the religions proper. A quasi-religion is a position or movement which turns some finite, limited object or ideal into an object of absolute devotion. This book examines three such quasi-religions - Humanism, Marxism and Nationalism - for the purpose of explaining their appeal and at the same time for showing the idolatry and corruption inherent in all attempts to deify something finite. Humanism of the anti-religious type makes mankind or human beings the object of absolute worth, the centre of the universe; Marxism elevates the communist ideal of the classless society and the dialectic of history to the position of absolutes commanding absolute loyalty; Nationalism declares the nation-state and its supposed 'mission' in world history to be the object of ultimate concern for all its citizens."
