Jacques Barzun has Died

Sad news today: one of the most esteemed academics of the 20th century died on Thursday. His book From Dawn to Decadence is one of my favorite histories and provides one of the best and most detailed stories of Western Civilization. It’s one of those books where  you can feel yourself becoming more erudite as you read it. He will be missed, but his work should inspire us all.
