Read in September, 2011

This is an introduction to classical humanities figureheads with a philosophical twist.

***
Author L. James Hammond became intrigued with philosophy while still a teen. Research and academic skills learned at Harvard allowed Hammond to compile a series of articles on various topics such as philosophy, religion, ethics, literature, politics, physics, and etc. First published in China, the material reflects the author’s philosophical view of how figures in classical humanities impacted today’s society. The miscellanea index and citations included throughout these articles will encourage adventurist readers who wish to go beyond this superficial introduction to read more works that are classical.
