Utilizing the dialogue format that the Greek philosopher made famous, Kreeft presents the latest in his series of small books on philosophy. In a unique and compelling take on the philosophies of the modern world, Kreeft pits the ancient Greek philosopher against the founder of Communism. Humorous, frank, and insightful, this book challenges the reader to step in and take hold of what is right and to cast away what is wrong. Topics covered include such varied subjects as private property, the individual, the ?Three Philosophies of Man?, women, individualism, and more. A wonderful introduction to philosophy for the neophyte, and a joy for the experienced student.

“Peter Kreeft’s work is: (1) unfailingly brilliant, (2) intellectually agile, (3) astonishingly perspicacious, (4) gloriously orthodox, (5) Chestertonianly aphoristic.” 
Thomas Howard, Author, On Being Catholic

“Imagine two of the most influential thinkers of all time, and two of the most diametrically opposed, thrust together in a no holds barred debate about some of the most important questions: Does man move the world or is he only a puppet of forces beyond his control? Is there a human nature or only market forces? Is Communism the liberator of mankind or a deadly scourge? The father of philosophy cross-examines the founder of Communism using the Communist Manifesto, details from the life of Marx himself, and the witnesses of history as evidence to be considered for judgment.” 
Dr. Christopher Kaczor
