A director of studies at the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes at the Sorbonne in Paris, he writes from a position of professorial confidence.

His style is not to inquire, explore or interrogate, in the fashion of academic studies today. It is to impart knowledge." - Sebastian Smee

"If we want to identify the great success of American research universities, and that success goes far beyond Harvard, we have to come back to the question of governance.
