ABSTRACT
Focuses on a paper read by Mortimer J. Adler on "God and the Professors," during a national Conference on Science, Philosophy and Religion in their relation to the Democratic Way of Life, that was held at the Jewish Theological Seminary, New York City on September 10-11. View that the most serious threat to Democracy is the positivism of the professors, which dominates every aspect of modern education and is the central corruption of modern culture; Claim that democracy has much to fear from the mentality of its teachers than from nihilism of Adolf Hitler; Eight propositions in metaphysics and eight propositions in theology, laid by him, every one of which, he asserts must be affirmed by the intelligent believer in democracy; Suggestion that the modern thesis of culture must necessarily include the medieval solution, but it can do so only by carrying the medieval principles to a higher level of comprehension.
