Origins of Writing

Being a political science major I found this article particularly interesting. Perhaps, I enjoyed the digressions more than the main focus or overall theme of the article; but nonetheless, it was interesting to myself all the same.

What I found particularly interesting in the article was when it talked about the composition of the body politic in Mesopotamia because it is something that I had never studied before.

The article quotes a “priest-king” which was interesting to me because it sounded like a sort of theocracy. It also expanded on this stating that there was a hierarchy of individuals instead of a egalitarian society which surprised me.

Overall, I found the article very informative; despite the fact that I might have focussed too heavily on the articles digressions.
