Lou Marinoff is an ardent defender of individual liberty and equal opportunity and a relentless opponent of group rights and unmerited preferments. He repudiates the divisive and vindictive political indoctrinations that have replaced higher education in the formerly free West, and that are now destroying Western civilization from within. He works tirelessly to expose the fallacies and frauds of political correctness, and to debunk progressivism's delusional doctrines and pernicious policies. Lou Marinoff is a Commonwealth Scholar, originally from Canada. He has published eight books, along with dozens of invited books chapters, scholarly articles, reviews, and interviews.
The author, Dr. Socrates clearly wanted his students to face their problems, and his dialogues demonstrate a constructive method for dealing with them. Indeed, Marinoff claims that philosophical dialogue, the exchange of ideas itself, can be therapeutic. Philosophical practice is not something new. It has been around, in one form or another, for a very long time. Emotional distress is not necessarily a disease. Modern psychiatry, however, appears to thrive on this model.
