Book Reviews of the "Renaissance", and Strickland's "Age of Utopia"
hope you are well,
we’re currently considering to start up with a more regular newsletter here on Substack - so here’s a first little update in the beginning of February 2022. It's been a great and busy month so far, with great discoveries and new and interesting connections in the world of the member forum of Iain McGilchrist. The first Live Q&A with Iain McGilchrist himself happened during the first week of this month, making the connections to both McGilchrist and the whole member community much stronger.
We’ve also received two new book reviews on our little "Renaissance" book from last summer, one short and poetic by James Willis, a retired family doctor in England, and a long and more personal one from Ian Glendinning, a retired engineer and brilliant philosopher in the McGilchrist forums. Both of these reviews have become warm inspirations for pondering writing future books and new creative projects.
Finally, we’ve just finished reading volume three of John Strickland's excellent history epic: "Paradise and Utopia", on the history and developments of Eastern and Western Christendom over two millennia - and we wrote a brief review of his third volume “Age of Utopia” here: https://ancientworld.website/the-age-of-utopia
