    The Alphabet versus the Goddess

    I am currently reading an extremely interesting book by Leonard Shlain called The Alphabet versus the Goddess which speaks of the conflict between word and image and how it changed the coarse of history.
    "Leonard Shlain contrasts the feminine right-brained oral teachings of Socrates, Buddha, and Jesus with the masculine creeds that evolved when their spoken words were committed to writing. The first book written in an alphabet was the Old Testament and its most important passage was the Ten Commandments. The first two reject of any goddess influence and ban any form of representative art."

    Here is an overview of his thesis...
