Dust I Am

I also am enthusiastic about the two Latin-titled pieces in Analog. Too many people have no idea that the Media Tempestas was a very favorable time for science because "the Latins believed that the World has a beginning and and end (i.e., time has direction) and that a singular rational God 'disposed all things by measure and number and weight'...." Flynn adds that the "Latins made a further, crucial distinction--between primary vs. secondary causation."

Thank you for this link! By any chance is Flynn's article available online anywhere? I'd love to see what he has to say, although I did enjoy your review.
