Another review on its way

Just finished writing another review: It’s about an extraordinary work devoted to medieval logic and Renaissance humanist rhetoric.

Students might find it daunting, but certainly the brave will endure. And if you love analyzing languages and doing translations, and are passionate about Latin, I promise you won’t be left intellectually poor.
The review will be published later this year in an academic journal. So, make a point of coming back and visiting my blog.
