James Cuno: The man you love to hate.

Posted on October 4, 2008


The newest review bashing James Cuno’s argument in Who Owns Antiquity? is intelligent, well-written, maybe even poetic.

Through the vehicle of Cicero, Ingrid D. Rowland analyzes the validity of Cuno’s argument, and concludes it is “self-servingly flawed.”  It’s a lengthy read, but a worthwhile one at that.

Read “Back to the Source: Who owns antiquity? Museums and the battle over our ancient heritage” by Ingrid D. Rowland on The Australian.

Rowland has just released her new book Giordano Bruno: Philosopher/Heritic.  She tells the story of the pre-Galileo Italian who also had visions of the universe that were beyond his time.  This fellow, however, was burned at the stake as a result.  The book is getting good reviews, and should be worth checking out if you are interested in the society and space of sixteenth century Rome.
