For centuries the world has been misled about the original source of the Arts and Sciences; for centuries Socrates, Plato and Aristotle have been falsely idolized as models of intellectual greatness; and for centuries the African continent has been called the Dark Continent, because Europe coveted the honor of transmitting to the world, the Arts and Sciences. It is indeed surprising how, for centuries, the Greeks have been praised by the Western World for intellectual accomplishments which belong without a doubt to the Egyptians or the peoples of North Africa.

Intriguing concept and possibly even some truths to it. Perhaps Egypt's influence on the Greek philosophers was greater than once thought. But the claims made in the book are far greater with very little clear evidence. And the logic is not strong. Simply because philosophers were persecuted in Athens does not mean those same philosophers were not Athenian, or could not have successfully developed their philosophy in Athens. I'm open to being convinced, but the arguments here are accompanied with very little, real evidence.more
