During his long career Prof. Bennie van der Walt has written extensively on worldviews and belongs to a circle of philosophers sometimes labelled as the "worldview movement" within reformational philosophy. His point of view is therefore a Christian and a reformational one, connected in particular to the tradition of D.H. Th. Vollenhoven. Given this premise, one might expect to find in this book the sort of abstruse and highly technical speculations that are sometimes delivered by philosophers. On the contrary, the author has once again managed to simplify and make accessible to the reader without solid philosophical education nine essays constituting relevant reflections on equally relevant themes. Students in various fields and amateurs of philosophical literature are thus the readers to whom the book may be especially recommended.
