Hi to all:
I read it 20 years ago, I yesterday finished reading it again, and it hit to me but that long ago. The Sleepwalkers, of Arthur Koestler.
The cosmovisión of the man crumbled little by little, from the Babylonians to Newton.
An extraordinary book, of five stars without a doubt.
I enjoy reading parts of it every so often. Nasty stuff.
Yes, it can have sad and repugnant historical situations, but the language of the book is exquisite.
It has some harsh words for modern (and not so modern) science as well. But I'm a contraphile.
Arthur Koestler was a great author.
He has left us some with some incredible, thought provoking, entertaining, awesome, insightful writings. I love his work.
I would like to read Case of the Midwife Toad and ..the other one following ...Coincidences... again.
I read "The Sleepwalkers" way back in high school and I loved it. Honestly, I should pick it up and give it another go. I recommend it as well.
