CMRS Roundtable: "From Dualisms to Convergences"
12:00PM until 1:00PM
In Royce 306
Professor Ricardo Quinones' (Claremont McKenna) recently- published
Dualisms: The Agons of the Modern World centered on differences,
deeply-rooted, contentious and recurrent, and on enmities that were
unending, not even abbreviated by death itself. In that book, aroused by
the strange neglect of Erasmus and Voltaire, he promised a second study,
now completed, that would focus on similarities, on the convergences
across the centuries that bring two such preeminent intellectuals
together in their fates and fashions. At this Roundtable, Prof. Quinones
will read some snippets from Dualisms and answer questions before
outlining the major convergences that make Erasmus and Voltaire, if not
brothers under the skin, at least kindred spirits, who may be joined
together in what has been heralded as the "second Reformation."
