Synopsis: A volume of wide-ranging essays deals with contemporary politics, modern thinkers, and today's universities, and examines works by Plato, Shakespeare, Swift, and Rousseau

From Library Journal: Historicism, cultural relativism, and positivism are again criticized by Bloom as contributing to a weakening of our traditional notions about good and evil, especially when applied to political philosophy. Unlike his best seller, The Closing of the American Mind ( LJ 5/1/87), this collection returns to the original texts upon which many of his ideas rest: Plato, Shakespeare, Rousseau, and Leo Strauss, among others. A brief piece titled "Western Civ" answers his critics, particularly those on the left who almost universally rejected his earlier book as a wrong-headed prescription for reforming American higher education. The essays in this anthology are demanding and probably not the stuff that make a best seller. Nevertheless, the pieces are engaging efforts to address serious ideas Bloom believes have been distorted or turned into dogmas, leaving us too few universal values upon which to build a theory of social justice. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/90.
