Dr. Yaron Brook and Dr. Onkar Ghate of the Ayn Rand Institute discuss the roles of reason and faith in Western civilization.

The question: Is there anything wrong with Western civilization?

Dr. Onkar Ghate answers that one needs to define what the West means. He notes that the West has philosophical influences by Plato and Aristotle, and that prosperity was brought by Aristotle's influence. Every culture has mystical elements, but what is distinctive about the West is that it has this rational, Aristotelian element, and this is what makes it good. The Christian, Platonic, anti-reason element brings evil into Western civilization.

This is a Q-&-A excerpt from "Why Do They Hate Us?" delivered March 26, 2003 in Irvine, California.
