INDEX OF NAMES

FROM THE FOREWORD BY GILLES DURAND

... After finishing the text, I found myself missing a list of the names that had been quoted, an absence which, probably due to professional deformation, led me to visualise a very simple exercise. It consisted of going through the names on the list one by one, underlining those I was familiar with. If, after counting them, the number was close to the total number of names on the list (I counted about four hundred), I should congratulate myself for having in my hands a book that was written for me. If, on the other hand, the number is far from the total, I should also congratulate myself, basically for the same reason,

for having found a book tailored to my needs. We should all feel in luck, as we have stumbled upon a rarity that both challenges and empowers us to stand up to the pseudo-truths that have been lurking since mankind's first steps and that will haunt us to the grave. It is an initiative that no one has asked me to take, but which I dare to suggest, as I strongly feel that by revealing our weaknesses, this book can nourish us from the outset, thus opening an alternative window of entry for those who do not usually visit the vicinity of alternative forms of expression, far away from conventionalisms.
