Shelby Foote
b. 11-17-1916; Greenville, MS
d. 6-27-2005; Memphis, TN

Shelby Foote was a noted historian of the American Civil War. He also wrote novels and short stories based on geography and culture of the Mississippi Delta and the agrarian planter system of the Old South to the Civil Rights era of the New South.

Foote is probably best remembered as one of the commentators in Ken Burn's documentary The Civil War.


Shelby Foote quotes ~
• “I'm crazy about Grant: his character, his nature, his science in fighting and everything else. But I don't like the idea that he never accepted the blame for anything, always found someone else to blame for any mistake that was ever made, including blaming Prentiss for Shiloh.”
• “If you want to study writing, read Dickens. That's how to study writing, or Faulkner, or D.H. Lawrence, or John Keats. They can teach you everything you need to know about writing.”
• “Of all the passions of mankind, the love of novelty most rules the mind. In search of this, from realm to realm we roam. Our fleets come loaded with every folly home.”
• “When you grow up in a totally segregated society, where everybody around you believes that segregation is proper, you have a hard time. You can't believe how much it's a part of your thinking.”

Michel Foucault
b. 10-15-1926; Poitiers, France
d. 6-25-1984; Paris

Historian, philosopher and sociologist Michel Foucault was also a professor. Foucault is best remembered for his studies of social institutions and science.

The 2007 Times Higher Education Guide listed Foucault as the most cited intellectual.

Michel Foucault quotes ~
• “Freedom of conscience entails more dangers than authority and despotism.”
• “Prison continues, on those who are entrusted to it, a work begun elsewhere, which the whole of society pursues on each individual through innumerable mechanisms of discipline.”
• “What strikes me is the fact that in our society, art has become something which is only related to objects, and not to individuals, or to life.”
• “As the archeology of our thought easily shows, man is an invention of recent date. And one perhaps nearing its end.”

b. 5-28-1941; Boston, MA
d. 1-2-2007; Atlanta, GA

Elizabeth Fox-Genovese was an historian of feminism and became a “primary voice of the conservative women's movement”.

Elizabeth Fox-Genovese quote ~
• “Sad as it may seem, my experience with radical, upscale feminism only reinforced my growing mistrust of individual pride.”
(editor note - this might be a good time to understand the psychological function of projection, mine included - IMHO).
