I think that the reason that we are still in awe 300 years later is these wise men talk about some very important topics in our history that intrigue us. We like to know how people thought back then and what the different veiws of the world were. On the contrary, another thing to learn from them is that sometimes they argue and converse over things that our world is still struggling with today and that amazes me.
