In his introduction, The eminent Egyptologist, Henri Frankfort, shows us the concept of self (I) integrated with the other (Thou) in the world view of primordial peoples in the Near East. The essays that follow wrap around this core are traditional issues of political philosophy - the nature of the universe, function of the state, as well as values and the good life - from the stance of interconnectivity.
