“No army can withstand the strength of an idea whose time has come.” – Victor Hugo
When I originally started reading Peter Watson’s “Ideas (From Fire to Freud)” a couple of weeks ago, I intended to jot down the more intriguing tidbits along the way. You know, make a nice little post full of enlightening curiosities. Pretty soon I realized that was a bad, er, idea. There’s something intriguing and thought-provoking in nearly every page of this one-man encyclopedia. Highly recommended, with plenty to argue about. Simply one of the coolest compendiums of human thought around, and I feel 15% less stupid for having read it.
RATING : MASTERPIECE!!!
