Hi Daniel, That's an interesting piece of information it would be
interesting to see those correspondences between yourself and Mr
Unfortunately I have only just started on the book so cant make too
much of a comment at this stage, when I read his opening comments in
the introduction I thought this was a bit synchronous as it tied in
with what Nigel was discussing.
I read the book "Man the Measure of All Things" some years back and
found it very mind expanding but while having "Man, Son of Man" on
the shelf for a few years now have never actually got around to
reading it, but I'll let you know what I think once I've finished
reading it what my impressions are.
