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 . . .
