Description: Article published in the January 2015 issue of the IntellectualArchive journal (vol.4, num.1, page 17).
This book is similar to a three-layered Russian nesting doll ("matrioshka"). The first layer is a summary of the book's three main themes. At first these themes may seem unconnected, but in the second and third layers each theme is further expounded upon, argued and analyzed more fully, explained in more depth, and backed up with factual information.
There are nine chapters in all: each of the book's three parts consists of three chapters, which correspond to the book's main themes, as denoted in the chapters' titles. After reading Part Two, the connections between the main themes already become clear. The smaller inside dolls in a nesting doll have to be taken out of the big one, set side by side, and studied separately. The three parts of the book can likewise be read separately, as well as together: Part One contains all the general theses. Part Three âE" the largest part âE" can also be read by itself. The main ideas are contained in Part One, and how I came to these conclusions is made clear in Part Two. An in-depth argumentation and critique of alternative ideas is presented in Part Three.
