What’s the case for classical studies in the 21st century? Eric Adler offers an answer in Classics, the Culture Wars, and Beyond.

In a 10-minute conversation with The Bookmonger, Adler says that there’s more value in the study of classics than most people realize, but that scholars often don’t know how to respond to public interest in their field. He also describes the reputation of Victor Davis Hanson, probably the best-known classicist in the United States but also a controversial figure among his academic peers.

    Ha. Eric Adler must have neglected to do his homework for where this interview would appear since he had no idea VDH is the most revered writer on Ricochet. He needn’t apologize for VDH’s politics here!
