is a historical biography of an ancient medical doctor who lived in 300 BC. In
, he described the society and
the common stereotypes of those days. He had travelled to several cities and described the events on his route in great detail. He indicates the stereotypes among folks which make them to be slave in their whole lives.
, he talked about sculptures which were pried as different gods, and he demonstrated the events which made him lose his fate to fake gods. The way of his thinking and his standpoints not only influenced me but
