fascinating, absorbing series of talks

(5 Sterne)

variety of talks, treating some complex aspects of the humanities from wide range of perspectives. Mostly academic, some humorous, all informative and absolutely NO use for sending a tired body to sleep - brain stirring stuff although some readers better than others
