Well ... it covers a lot of ground. I get the feeling that there are gaps, and maybe that's unavoidable. Manicheism went to China, for instance, and Sufism went to India and Indonesia, not to mention West Africa below the Arabic-speaking Maghreb.

Spinoza is worth a line or two.

I think it's a stretch to tack Nietzsche and the '60s on there at the end. Is there really a connection worth pointing out?

All in all, I like what's here. I'm hoping you'll add to it. smiley - smiley
