Latin as a Universal Language

Nature volume 96, page 649 (10 February 1916) | Download Citation



IN the notice of Prof. Guido Baccelli in NATURE of January 27, you mention that at the meeting of the eleventh International Congress of Medicine in Rome in 1894 he made a powerful appeal for the introduction of Latin as a universal language all over the world. This proposal seems to me so important and valuable that it should not be passed over with a simple reference, but should, on the contrary, receive the most careful consideration, not only from the councils of our universities, from the heads of schools, and from educational authorities in general, but from all business men and all lovers of their country.
