The purpose of this book is to explore how human beings think. The scope is world historic, but the focus is on the present and the future. The theory is that all human thought can be reduced to three methods: myth, story, and science. The first two terms are explaned at length to avoid the unfortunate overlap and confusion which commonly exists. This book is not for the superficial reader. Although not written in technical terms, it demands concentration and an interest in history in the broadest sense.
