I believe that science, specifically chemistry, is a window through which we can learn a lot about humanity. The poem at the beginning of Pilgrim's Progress tells about how the author did not mean to make this book but it simply came from his thoughts on different work and took over. I want to use this book to start my first class of the semester and talk about how we can be looking at chemistry and find out something about ourselves without trying too hard.

John Bunyan writes, Pilgrim’s Progress; his allegory, his dream; depicting a spiritual journey leading to everlasting freedom while he himself was in prison. Dreams were given great significance in the ancient world. Pilgrim’s Progress is a dream, with characters and events symbolizing knowledge, and lessons learned throughout the story, which is quite an adventure. An adventure, that would appeal to both adult and child.

First words
As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place where was a den, and I laid me down in that place to sleep; and, as I slept, I dreamed a dream.
(Introduction to the Penguin edition by Roger Sharrock) -- The Pilgrim's Progress is a book which in the three hundred years of its existence has crossed most of the barriers of race and culture that usually serve to limit the communicative power of a classic.
And all the trumpets sounded for him on the other side.
