Niall Ferguson
“Can a non-Western power really hope to benefit from downloading Western scientific knowledge, if it continues to reject that other key part of the West’s winning formula: the third institutional innovation of private property rights, the rule of law and truly representative government?”
Niall Ferguson, Civilization: The West and the Rest

John Williams
“Una guerra no sólo mata a unos cuantos miles o a unos cuantos cientos de miles de jóvenes. Mata algo en la gente que no puede recuperarse nunca. Y si alguien pasa por suficientes guerras, pronto todo lo que queda es el bruto, la criatura que nosotros —usted y yo, y otros como nosotros— han sacado del fango».”
John Williams, Stoner

Niall Ferguson
“young people at Western schools and universities have been given the idea of a liberal education, without the substance of historical knowledge. They have been taught isolated ‘modules’, not narratives, much less chronologies. They have been trained in the formulaic analysis of document excerpts, not in the key skill of reading widely and fast.”
Niall Ferguson, Civilization: The West and the Rest

Niall Ferguson
“No serious writer would claim that the reign of Western civilization was unblemished. Yet there are those who would insist that there was nothing whatever good about it. This position is absurd.”
Niall Ferguson, Civilization: The West and the Rest

Walter Isaacson
