Description

Quoted from the "Introduction" by Harry Elmer Barnes.

"Professor Robinson's notion of the activities of man on the earth as a "comedy" suggests comparison with Dante, who viewed the same field as a divine comedy. In both cases the authors used the term comedy in the sense of a drama rather than as something humorous or facetious. In the case of Dante, the divine comedy of man was thought of as controlled and directed by the heavenly powers. With Robinson, the human comedy meant the drama of man as devised and directed by mankind itself.

While Professor Robinson's own modesty would have prevented him from even suggesting a comparison with Dante, yet it is not at all pretentious for a student of human culture to make this comparison. Dante was far and away the ablest systematizer and popularizer of medieval supernaturalism. James Harvey Robinson can be fairly compared with Dante as the most competent, engaging, and persuasive expositor of the knowledge which has grown out of our own age of science, secularism, agnosticism, and intellectual emancipation. The comparison may, perhaps, be carried farther. Dante was the last great spokesman of the medieval order of things. It may well be that Professor Robinson is the last outstanding champion of the age of science, capitalism, liberalism, and democracy — in other words, of the fruition of that civilization and world order which followed the medieval. Professor Robinson's treatment of man in the perspective of our age is as coherent and consistent as Dante's presentation of the medieval outlook upon the human drama."
