Reviews "The Fear of Insignificance is the type of book that can change your life. Strenger encourages the reader to create meaning autonomously and not shy away from the painful work involved in becoming a genuine individual. Haaretz, Best Books of the Year. June 6 "Carlo Strenger. Gradually a tragic picture of Homo globalis evolves; locked into illusions without being able to see the bars of the cage. Its greatness resides is its precise diagnosis of the central problems of our times and in offering solutions that avoid flattery and instant redemption.

Strenger calls for a culture of critical argumentation as an antidote to fashionable postmodern relativism. His diagnosis is compelling: no matter how much people achieve, they live in persistent doubt that their lives are of significance.

His call for a deep, intellectual engagement with basic existential questions will provide many with a road towards a more stable sense of meaning. We live in a period in which humanity is about to self-destruct, yet our culture is busy ranking individuals according to their net-worth and celebrity rather than through their actual achievement.

In his impassioned call for reason and for reflection on what in our lives is of real value, Strenger joins writers like Santayana, Camus, and Faulkner in embracing the awareness of tragedy and mortality, and he shows that this leads to both creativity and compassion and can be a lasting source of hope and happiness.

Fortunately, the author has the erudition, thoughtfulness, clarity, and the ability to draw both from his clinical practice and from the conclusions of many significant thinkers to offer a rich reward to the reader.
