In the words of the 19th-century German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss: ‘mathematics is the queen of the sciences’; like literacy, widespread numeracy is one of the defining features of modernity. In fact, […] Tue, 16 Oct 2018 17:33:55 +0000
The Power Of Relics: Why Humans Cannot Resist The Magical Potency Of Charismatic Objects

“Latin’s revival, among young teachers on the one hand and nostalgic nationalists on the other, appears to flourish on two opposing ends. But while they may seem to be separate, the two are inexorably and uneasily linked through the history of white men’s appropriation of Latin as a marker of superiority.” Tue, 16 Oct 2018 16:03:21 +0000
