In her review of Shadi Bartsch’s book Plato Goes to China, Boston College faculty member Martha Bayles writes that the author does not fulfill the promises she lays out in the opening pages of her book. Bayles goes on to cite three reasons, including “the chatbot-style superficiality of [Bartsch’s] historical overview.” Bayles teaches in BC’s Political Science Department. She is the author of the books Hole in Our Soul and Through a Screen Darkly. Read the book review in the Wall Street Journal.
