On Yannaras:

Yannaras comes up with a view of the West that has abandoned the original understanding of the gospel and the Church, and settled into a rationalist and legalistic understanding of human existence, subject to law and custom; course was bound, sooner or later, to turn to the ashes of nihilism, while at the same time reducing value to price and ushering in the consumerism that is so marked in modern Western Society.
pp. 257-8
