However, the wide-ranging and Catholic Philip. The result, however, free, enlightened and progressive Occident nature of this discussion also deprives the is a pair of only cursory sketches that lack defined dialectically against a despotic, work of a strong sense of monographic in-depth analysis of the principal historical mystical and sterile Orient.

Unlike Wilson, who is adept at Said’s framework by exploring Eurocen- across as a collection of loosely related psychohistory, Patterson wields his brush trism from within marginal Europe itself. essays; the absence of a conclusion, with only the broadest of strokes, hinting at, In particular, he is interested in approaching which would have tied the many elements but never quite revealing, the psychological the idea of Europe from the perspective of of the author’s argument together more impetus for Elizabeth’s refusal to marry. its southern periphery.
