This is a philosophical journal. If you happen to be a person who likes stretching his or her thoughts and the use of words and language in the pursuit of knowledge and understanding, you''re probably an intelligent seeker or the philosophy / religion professor at your local university (even if it''s Harvard) or the Community College). This is a collection of articles on cosmology, philosophy, myth and culture (according to the subtitle on the cover---don''t worry; it really is.) If you feel bored with the basic and simple, this is a great bargain. Alexandria in Egypt was know for its great library which was burned in early times of Western "civilization." What is lost is lost. As an interesting historical point and one which points to the behavior of the human species, even today, many consider it easier to destroy something rather than run the risk of losing the discussion and having to think and learning that one is not always right. So, if you feel up to it, this is a highly recommended collection. You should have the reading and analytical skills of a reasonably well educated high school graduate or the equivalent . If you''ve had a little PR (Phil-Rel) experience in college, this will be engaging and enjoyable for you. I''m not saying any particular article in the collection is right or wrong. I''m just saying that it''s very interesting and, at the least, will give your brain a bit of well needed and enjoyable exercise. Hey, better than jogging, right? :) ~Mark
