Annotation

Satire on philosophers in a visit to an isolated island. Diversity of dress and architecture. City moated and walled to keep cattle from disturbing the reflections of the philosophers. Rampant hypochondria. No women or children, and the absence of women is considered essential. At the end the philosophers think that they are threatened by Amazons from another island; it is not clear whether or not they are.
