With "Ancestor of the West", three distinguished French historians reveal the story of the birth of writing and reason, demonstrating how the logical and religious structures of Near Eastern and Mesopotamian cultures served as precursors to those of the West.
Jean Bottero is director emeritus of L'Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes in Paris. He is the author of many books, several of which have been translated and published by the University of Chicago Press, including "Mesopotamia: Writing, Reasoning, and the Gods.""
