      In his book he didn’t criticize Marx, but rather materialism. Marxian materialism is a very imperfect materialism because it traces all changes back only to something which is itself already the product of the human mind. It is important to stress the fact that the critiques of Marxism were sometimes very wrong.   Prospective readers should know what this book is not. Although the cover art and the title suggest that this will be a political harangue or screed, it is something quite different. It is a (very long and detailed) book by a University of Chicago-trained psychiatrist on human development, principally the model espoused by Erik s:

It was a debate Keller won, and it not only provides a great look a theology of justice but also a gracious, humble style of engaging in disagreement over social media.
