Today’s WIMP: the Worst Ideas in Modern Philosophy is brought to you by Immanuel Kant (1724-1804), a philosopher who wrought confusion and derailed Western thinking from the path of wisdom.

Kant’s claim that we should think for ourselves sounds attractive and it has become a commonplace in modern thought. Nevertheless, in reality, it has led us to neglect the ancient signposts of wisdom. The tragic results are all around us in a world that neglects both right reason and God’s revelation.
