DOUBT: A HISTORY The Great Doubters and Their Legacy of Innovation from Socrates and Jesus to Thomas Jefferson and Emily Dickinson

by | Read by Martha Harmon Pardee

Contemporary Culture • 20 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Shifting between the views of the religious believer and the agnostic questioner, Hecht takes the listener on a journey into the history of doubt from the Greeks to the present. Martha Pardee's measured pacing lends clarity to the complex subject. She graces this nonfiction work with her firm, reflective tones, her sense of humor, and her wonder at the passionate seekers of truth she is describing. Challengers throughout history have attempted to reconcile the seeming meaninglessness of the universe with humanity's need for significance. Hecht's witty prose coupled with Pardee's expressive narration produces an accessible presentation about skepticism and the intellectual discovery it can lead to.
