The Tower

  • Anthony Bradney

Abstract

The image of the tower is a potent symbol in many cultures. In the ‘Epilogue’ in Blackstone’s Tower, Twining referred to the Eiffel Tower with respect to his book. This article will instead look at the Tower of Babel, the concept of the ivory tower and the tower in which Montaigne composed his essays. It will ask what lessons universities and their law schools can learn from reflecting on these mythical and real towers.

Keywords: Tower of Babel; Montaigne’s Tower; ivory tower.
