A few weeks ago, chief “Male Studies” proponent Lionel Tiger accused me of not having read his book. Guilty as charged! But now that Tiger tipster Dan has sent along the first two paragraphs of Tiger’s latest, God’s Brain, I can say with confidence that I’ve read about as much Tiger as humanly possible. Namely: “The first impulse animating this book was simple if enchanted puzzlement about the remarkable difference between what the brain created about religion and the vast and long-lasting social systems that were the result.” But which fires occupy the world in which the United States is inextricably embedded? The world in which the United States is inextricably embedded may never know.
