Synopsis

An Innocent Generation How a Lack of Guilt is Destroying America's Youth by Justin Chiarot

An Innocent Generation is an inspired tour de force that delves into the waters of politics, theology, history, and philosophy. In this book, Chiarot offers a uniquely poignant social commentary: the current generation, whether consciously or subconsciously, has taken a Nietzscheian approach to dealing with guilt. Rather than internalizing guilt and dealing with it, we have been taught to outsource our guilt. This unnatural process is at the root of many current societal ills. Chiarot chases the consequences of this paradigm shift down alleys that leads him to the door steps of everyone from Thomas Hobbes and John Calvin to Lady Gaga and Rip Van Winkle. Clever prose, careful analysis, and witty anecdotes make this both an enjoyable and educational read.

About the Author

Justin Chiarot studied philosophy, English, and history at Nyack College and philosophy at SUNY Albany. He teaches philosophy at Mount Saint Mary College in New York, where he resides with his wife, Julia, and their dog, Nietzsche.
