A short quote from the work itself that purports to explain it should be allowed under fair use, but the quote should be correct. The New York Times article used as a source says, 'Mr. Taleb’s real wisdom is proudly rooted in classical philosophy, which guarantees it a contemporary appeal. “My classical values make me advocate the triplet of erudition, elegance and courage,” he writes, “against modernity’s phoniness, nerdiness and philistinism.” ' I intend to read the book and see which quote is correct: that one, or the one currently on the wikipedia page.

Need disambiguation? edit

I have put a hatnote with a link to Procrustes, but I think a disambiguation page would me more appropriate. The current page would be renamed to The Bed of Procrustes (book) Agnerf (talk) 16:41, 5 November 2018 (UTC)Reply
