Jacques Barzun, 1907-2012

Filed under: Jacques Barzun — Razib Khan @ 12:39 am

Jacques Barzun died last week. From Dawn to Decadence is one of those books which is useful not as much for its descriptive sweep of social history, but for the insights and counter-narratives which it may elicit. I am left in awe of the life of the mind which Barzun experienced in his time.
