Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Without explaining his background<-->physical science? social science? philosophy of science? mythology?<-->Bancroft sets out to explore the frontier between the human imagination and the world that presents itself to the senses, between myth and science. He begins by surveying the multitude of symbolic representations people take for granted on a daily basis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
