Symposium Overview

  • Malcolm H. Macfarlane


I must confess to uncertainity as to precisely what an overview is, particularly an overview of a conference given before the conference. It smacks of summarizing what speakers have said before they have said it, which reminds me of a jingle that Scottish natives use to pacify tourists who complain about the quality of Scotland’s mountain highways:

If you’d seen these roads before they were made You’d throw up your hands and bless General Wade.

It is not clear to me which of the various parts I should play-General Wade, the native or the tourist.
