The predicament (Of The Celtic Spirit and Its Scientific Soul)

I can’t concentrate on reading about ancient Gaul as I keep moving from Gaul to contemporary debates about philosophy, physics and string theory.

I think the relationship and unease is related to observing that I have no clear idea how to define what a culture is.

The first of my christmas book token spending has been identified at least.

Not an issue of concentration it’s one of understanding.

The book proposes a different historical vision. It does not see the world as populated by endangered authenticities- pure products always going crazy
