5.0 out of 5 stars A work of extraordinarily detailed research., 7 Aug 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Hamlet's Mill: A Essay Investigating the Origins of Human Knowledge and Its Transmission Through Myth (Paperback)
De Santillana and Von Deschend have pieced together an amazing amount of data into an erudite and convincing piece of archaeo-astronomy. Their crusade in comparative mythology leads the reader to an understanding of ancient world myths way outside the mainstream of interpretation. I highly recommend Hamlet's Mill to anyone who is remotely serious about understanding and interpreting ancient myths, as well as grasping some of the more obscure Platonic concepts. It concludes with a dissertation that considers the differences between the current scientific observance of 'eternal progress', whereby humans endevour to master Nature, and the ancient scientific observance of 'eternal cycles', whereby humans endevoured to be one with Nature.
