These book pairings are a couple examples of when 1 + 1 = much more than 2.
- French on Americans on French – The Discovery of France & Democracy in America. Discovery is a modern book by an American about old France, Democracy is an old book by a Frenchman about modern (for its time) America. The writing couldn’t be more different, but the themes are wonderfully similar.
- The Origin of the Mind – The Mind in the Cave & The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind. One is about consciousness arising through art, the other through words. Both are controversial, speculative, unique, and fascinating.
