Dr. John Lukacs

Dr. John Lukacs

“During the twentieth century the capacity and the practice of listening have deteriorated.  In all walks of life, in all kinds of circumstances, the capacity of attention has become disrupted and curtailed because of the incredible―literally incredible―amount of noise and sounds and music and words and slogans whirling around people’s heads and ears.” ― Remembered Past; On History, Historians, and Historical Knowledge, by John Lukacs, Chapter VI, Page 638, edited by Mark G. Malvasi and Jeffrey O. Nelson, ISI Books, Wilmington, Delaware, © 2005 ISI Books.
