Dr. Danaher publishes "The Second Truth"

Posted by Fernando.Arzola on Wednesday January 22, 2014

Dr. James Danaher, Professor of Philosophy, published his fifth book, The Second Truth: A Brief Introduction to the Intellectual and Spiritual Journey that is Philosophy, by Paragon House.  

“We are born into families, language communities, and cultures that provide us with an initial understanding (first truth) through which to interpret our experience. Civilization advances, however, because certain authentic individuals like Copernicus, Socrates, and Jesus pursued a better way (second truth) to conceptualize and interpret their experience. Eventually, we inherit filtered versions of their second truth as part of our initial understanding, but such an understanding originated out of a specific form of thinking known as philosophy.”
