Review of Juan Luis Segundo, Faith and Ideologies

West, Cornel

Juan Luis Segundo's Faith and Ideologies builds onhis earlier work and puts forward a full-blown philosophical anthropology—a detailed specification
of "the universal dimensions of human beings." Segundo is the most ambitious and audacious of the Latin American liberation religious thinkers. He disregards the traditional intellectual division of labor in the university and eagerly pursues a daring idea; no matter how half-baked that idea may be. In this book, Segundo's ambition and audacity lead to organizational fragmentation and philosophical confusion.
