This book is about creation as it was conceived by the classical Greeks. The object that is created is very specific. It may be a space vehicle or a plan for a form of government, such as a republic or a kingdom, or may also be a work of art; music, painting or literature. This sort of creation is known by people all over the world in order to do something that has never been done before.
