The Ascent of Man

Seen on Gab.ai.  And post title is deliberately transgressive, to annoy the (smugly but ignorantly) comfortable.

Thought you were going to mention something about the Jacob Bronowski TV series of the same name.

Dr. Jim, the link at the end of the post is to his book. I expect that it is generally considered Double Plus Ungood Crimethink in the Academy these days. Assuming they think of it at all.

Oh, DUH!

I didn't click the link, 'cuz I didn't notice it.

We're up to our elbows getting things finalized on the "new" house purchase, and I haven't been as attentive to blog stuff as I usually am.

Great book, and I've read it a couple of times. I also have the complete series on DVD. Wonderful TV from our friends (well....used to be) at the BBC!
