The Ascent of Man

I remember when this was broadcast on television. I find myself frequently drawn to the same passage from the companion book.

Jacob Bronowski’s other works I’ve found very interesting. He impressed me with how well he blends discussion of science with art.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.

One Response to The Ascent of Man

    That’s very powerful. Perhaps I’m seeing it through eyes that have just finished reading the final Harry Potter book, with it’s strong theme of intolerance of racism. Perhaps I’m seeing it through eyes that, less than a year ago, visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC.
    Or, perhaps, this just stands on it’s own.
    Thanks.
