Preparing the entry before this one, which I did in German last night, I spent much time reading books on antiquity, such as H.-J. Gerhrke, Kleine Geschichte der Antike. This and all other books, which - in search of historic truth 3.500 BC to 400 AD and on physiology in antiquity - I picked up, opened and scanned at the Kulturkaufhaus, to my surprise and dismay suffered from one track approaches. And often, because they avoided the question of how humanity may in fact have begun, their work represent a curious reversal of cause and effect.
To alliviate the resulting limitations I visited the Pergamonmuseum at the Berlin Museumsinsel and took a look at art of the period under consideration. My husband came along and took this photograph of Platon.
Yes, the famous thinker Platon, who was among the first to heed Kant's statement, made some 2.000 years after the fact, "Unmündigkeit ist das Unvermögen sich seines Verstandes ohne Leistung eines anderen zu bedienen".
