Marc Aronson takes on challenges, particularly a substantial critique by Jim Murphy, to his article "New Knowledge," which appears in the current issue of the Magazine. In his post Jim says he wishes we had a way for readers to comment on articles we post on the site and SO DO I. Until we figure out how to do that, you can comment here or in our Letters to the Editor column, reachable at Magazine at hbook dot com.
(Oh, and that thing Marc blames on us? Totally him. But he is still among our beloved.)
