KIRKUS REVIEW

An inquiry into popular misconceptions which scotches some favorite saws. In terms of current backgrounds, the answers are here to popular superstitions, their propaganda values are discussed, their aesthetic and ethical values. This is an analysis of concepts that makes for controversial, thought-provoking recapitulation of the history of ideas. Invigorating, striking in examples, this has more appeal than the usual book in its field. For students of somanties as well as the intelligent layman.
