The primary operative function of this work is that the Protestant Reformation cemented into western consciousness a conception of humanity as fundamentally depraved, and thus ushered in a conception of human reason far more restricted in scope than known to pre-Reformation philosophy.

The primary operative function of this work is that the Protestant Reformation cemented into western consciousness a conception of humanity as fundamentally depraved, and thus ushered in a conception of human reason far more restricted in scope than known to pre-Reformation philosophy. Though this study is essentially a work in the history of philosophy, it lays the groundwork for an original philosophy of language as well as offering a suggestion for a re-evaluation of Hegel in light of this approach to langauge. The book concludes that what was in fact lost in the secular appropriation of the total depravity of man, was a conception of reason intimately linked to the assumption that language and the general principles that govern it stand in some way as the guarantors of the correspondence of human thought and institutions and the world at large. At the bottom of this is the loss of the classical understanding of the faculty of practical reason.
