This thread reminded me of another doubtful book: "The Alphabet Effect" by
Rpbert K. Logan, Ph.D.

From the blurb: Logan explores the interrelashionships between the
evolution of writing and documentation and  broader patterns of
intellectual and cultural development on a global level.

He has sections like "Why Science Began in the West".

I half-read it once. It contains my pencil notes. If anybody with money to
burn wants it . . .
