ISBN-13: 9780872233843

Wilson takes you on a trip via esoterica, explaining why Eve within the Bible and Eris in Greek fantasy have been either concerned with nefarious apples...Why attitudes towards the feminine breast correlate with struggle and peace...Why the nice Goddess of the ancients went to Hell and why so much folks visit Hell in our desires occasionally...Why girl pacifists baring their breasts in entrance of the Pentagon have been unconsciously repeating an historic ritual...Why celibates have burned such a lot of "witches" ... and lots more and plenty, even more !!

Robert Anton Wilson's "Book of the Breast" was once his fourth publication. Now published via New Falcon Publishing below the indiscriminating name of "Ishtar Rising." The variation that i'm reviewing is of the Playboy Press variation that is really various, that is why i'm making the excellence. even supposing the textual content is identical, through the booklet there are photos of Playboy Pin-Ups which upload to the entire satisfaction of the e-book and serves its goal in getting around the notion of the e-book. the recent Falcon version is all kind and some non-Playboy graphics inserted. The ebook nonetheless was once nice. Wilson makes many fantastic arguments in regards to the Breast and the way we should always be adoring the Breast, now not forsaking it, or locking it out of society as though it have been the satan incarnate which rose upon women's Breasts for males to gawk and lose their clinical intent. all through background, at the very least from the Judaica-Hebrew inception on all through time up until eventually concerning the 20's was once intercourse, girls and the other kind of so-called deviant concept used to be thought of heretical. R. A. Wilson offers an amalgum of references and quotations and places it jointly in a cohesive logical and thought-provoking demeanour, which i think is his uniqueness. His comprehension and retension point of knowledge fascinates me and this can be another testimony to that trait of his that he makes use of so good in his writing. hugely reccomended! i might recommend, although, that you just look for this model earlier than settling for the recent Falcon variation. even if I absolutely help the library of latest Falcon (as they one among my favourite publishers). The Playboy version is a bit tricky to discover and you can pay a number of funds additional, yet for the adventure of it, i feel it's worthy it.
Though this publication is released by means of Playboy Press, its now not xxx or porn. photos of topless women are integrated to demonstrate definite issues of view.
