Fjordman produces a favorable book review of Ricardo Duchesne’s historical tome “The Uniqueness of Western Civilization”. I checked out the price and it is a bit spendy on Amazon. I found it amazing Duchesne’s book is $268.60 in paperback and less in hardback at $133.97 to as much as $366.79 through online vendor Amazon. Even the $133 price tag is a bit much for me. I think I might have gone as high $60 with the Fjordman book review. O well, as Doris Day used to sing – Que Sera Sera. I’ll keep looking and eventually I’ll find a used version that is more in my price range.
Let me leave you with one thought that I think I gleaned from Fjordman’s book review. Western Civilization is unique because the culture bred individuals that had the wander lust to discover what is over the unknown horizon. This unknown horizon is more than just exploration for new lands but also the exploration of new concepts because someone had the audacity to think outside the well accepted box to find something that brought innovation to humanity.
