ABSTRACT
The article comments on philosophical concepts about man, religion and the world. Charles Frankel's philosophy about faith and reason is indicated in his work "The Case for Modern Man." Another author, Daniel Bell, wrote about the sacred and about the founts of religion within human experience. The author argues that religion is alive and well under democratic capitalism. The world, humanity and religious issues are not eradicated by socialism or capitalism.
