really liked it
Read in October, 2011

Great insight into who we are, why we are, how we are, what we are, and, where we may be headed.

"Pure knowledge is the ultimate emancipator. It equalizes people and sovereign states, erodes the archaic barriers of superstition and promises to lift the trajectory of cultural evolution."

It's a short book--from my perspective--but it packs lots of information; information that can lead one to delve deeper into many and varied disciplines of the study of mankind.

If you want to understand some of the scientific materialists' worldview, this book provides a good start. As a scientific materialist of sorts myself, I enjoyed this intellectual discussion/argument.

Read, learn, and enjoy.
