The disciplinary range of Law‘s book The War for Children’s Minds is broad; it engages in historical discussion about whether the Enlightenment was responsible for the Holocaust and whether Hitler was an atheist. It also uses sociological research to defend the Enlightenment against the accusation that it eroded community values, promoting individualism. In this commentary I shall provide a critical survey only of Law‘s key philosophical distinctions and arguments. Like Law, I will assume, controversially, that truth is ―out there‖, with observation, experimentation, argument and conceptual clarification being our best tools to find it.
