Theodore Zeldin re-iterated his belief in the powerfully transformative role of conversation:

"Individuals are no longer what they used to be, each is unique. That makes a big difference to how they work. Each one is an enigma. There are six billion people whom we need to discover. We are now in the same position as the scientists of the last century, discovering the different elements and molecules of the natural world. So there is no need to feel lost or aimless. There is a wonderful adventure before us."

Theodore Zeldin's magnum opus teems with original and humane ideas, many having a direct influence upon the evolution of Halcyon.

Zeldin, whom I had the pleasure to meet in Oxford in 2008, says that "enough is known, enough has been written, about what divides people; my purpose is to investigate what they have in common". This is work worthy of a lifetime, perhaps of many people's lifetimes.
