Arnold analyzes how American dogmas, particularly those of its learned men, resemble the views of the University of Paris in the Middle Ages, who held, for example, that quinine could not cure fever, since this contradicted the principles of men of decency and erudition who all knew that fever was caused by humors in the blood. One chapter is titled "The Personification of the Corporation" and examines the idea that great organizations can be treated as inidividuals--a fine example of folklore adopted by some of our contemporary learned men. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
