>Stolen Legacy: The Egyptian Origins of Western Philosophy

>argues against the long-taught theory that human civilization started in ancient Greece, defending its origins as coming instead from Africa.
Nobody to my knowledge has claimed human civilisation comes from the Greeks.
It is claimed that Western civilisation comes from the Greeks.
>George G. M. James demonstrates how some of the greatest Greek scholars like Herodotus, Hippocrates, Aristotle, were actually influenced by long-held Egyptian philosophy and teachings.
Well that's quite a bit different to what the title and the first sentence claim.
Its a lot more milder.
Has anyone ever denied the Egyptians influence on maths or medicine?
And for them to be influenced they'd have to be able to read and live in a city with access to writings from across the Mediterranean - a civilisation in other words.

Fuck you, OP. I came into this thread expecting BotNS to be on that list. I wanted to believe that inmates across the U.S. were savoring the tableau of Catholic philosophy and struggling through Wolfe's prose. I had a dream of society's rejected and dispossessed finding common ground with an outcast torturer, empathizing with his struggle to find his place in a world that reviled him for plying the only trade he knew, reflecting on their own lives and realizing that change is difficult but possible.

Instead I got kinda depressed and had to identify some waffles.

I'm honestly surprised To Kill a Mocking Bird isn't in there.

Also, no autobiography of Malcolm X?
