Adam C. Zern shares his thoughts regarding the book A World Without Heroes: The Modern Tragedy by George Roche:
"I learned of this book while listening to a speech by Dallin H. Oaks. He referenced a particular quote from the book and I became interested. George Roche, the author, was president of Hillsdale college at one time.
The subject matter of the book deals with what the author considers very counter-productive and even destructive modern philosophies, which he labels "anti-hero." Most of his commentaries, for that is what the book mainly is, are lucid and his arguments are strong. The book wanders a little and some of what he says feels redundant but I enjoyed the book overall. His commentary on the modern outlook of science and what he calls "scientism" is especially interesting and accurate. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading social/academic commentaries.
A World Without Heroes: The Modern Tragedy is probably the closest to a type of book that I would be most likely to write in the future."
