Western Genius

It is a good time to recall what the Stanford professor Robert Harrison has written in his fine book Juvenescence ,

“The greatness of Western civilization, for all its disfiguring vices, consists in the fact that it has repeatedly found ways to regenerate itself by returning to, or fetching from, its nascent sources. The creative synergy between Western wisdom and Western genius has always taken the form of projective retrieval—of birthing the new from the womb of antecedence.”
