Age Of Bacon
Tue, 10/01/2013 - 20:00

I enjoyed reading Steven Bayme’s review of “Like Dreamers” (“Still One Nation?” The Arts, Sept. 27), but his
allusion to the “Medieval British philosopher, Roger Bacon” needs correction. Francis Bacon (1561-1626) was an Elizabethan philosopher who noted in his
essay, “Of Studies,” that “some books are to be tasted, others to be
swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.”

That Halevi’s book
merits repeated digestion is a fitting conclusion.

Like Dreamers, Roger Francis Bacon
