Hi everyone,

Many times we seem to be going on hearsay when we discuss issues on this forum, if we had facts and at least some backing from 'authorities' our arguments might have some credibility. With this in mind I was wondering if any of you read PNG journals or books, and if so would it be appropriate for us to discuss these books or journal articles on this Development Forum ?

Here is a quote that might spark our interest, it's from Descartes:

"...that the reading of all books is like a conversation with the most honorable people of past ages, who were their authors, indeed, even like a set conversation in which they reveal to us only the best of their thoughts; that oratory has incomparable power and beauty;"

Sorry but few people on Scape read anything other than what they are required for their school or work.
