What reading level is The Passions Or Mind And Matter book?
To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:

Plutarch informs us that Lycurgus thought the best expedient against jealousy was to allow men the freedom of lending their wives to whom they should think fit ; yet this obliging loan was not considered an adulterous intercourse. Far from it : for Plutarch also informs us, that when Geradas, a Spartan, was asked by a stranger what punishment was inflicted, on adul- tery, he replied, that the offender was obliged to pay to the plaintiff a bull, with a neck so long that he might reach over Mount... Taygetus, and drink of the river Eurotas that flowed on the other side. The stranger, surprised at this, observed, " Why, it is impossible to find such a bull ! " When Gera- das replied: "It is just as possible to find an SELF-LOVE AND EGOTISM. 297 adulterer in Sparta. " Here we merely see an illustration of the axiom, " A man has a right to do what he likes with his own. " The essential difference that exists between self- love and selfishness is, that self-love may inspire the most benevolent and generous disposition, while selfishness is incapable of entertaining any senti- ment that does not directly refer to personal gratification.
