I couldn't agree with Wilson more. It's not because you learn something "new" per se, but because what he presents in this book completely changes the structure you'd built to encapsulate/understand Western thought and its progress since Ancient Greece.
i am a poor excuse for a scholar, having no Latin and less Greek, but I wrestle diligently with my Loeb Library editions, okey, not my Loeb Library editions, although i do have two volumes of Augustine, but the library's Loeb Library editions, and there are moments as i am reading this when, if you squinted and gazed down on me from a great height, i might appear to be some form of scholar. so i struggle with it, not having the historical nailed down, not having a grasp of the theological, barely apprehending the classical tradition. in a way this is an ideal crash course except it is the deep end and i'm taking on gulping mouthfuls of chlorinated water as i thrash about. still, i keep jumping in and if i dont wave my arms too much i can float for a few pages. every time i emerge from this book i feel both elevated and abysmal - elevated by mere association, abysmal in my limited capacity.
