Allan Bloom

We know how to have fun-read an old book and discuss the stuffing out of it.  Bloom rebloomed with some help from Saul Bellow who filled in the gaps about his Socratic mentor or something similar. I still think misogynist or not Allan Bloom was trying to guide us out of the wilderness with his body-of work that is- as a guide to the university we can make for ourselves using books. We do a bit of that with our book club.
