Date: Mon, 13 Dec 1993 15:05:00 CST From: Larry Davis Subject: Ages and Centuries I do agree with Dennis Baron that the 17th cent. was the Renaissance; the 18th was the Age of Enlightenment; the 19th brought the Industrial Revolution. My problem is with his characterization of the 20th cent. as having brought us "modern times." Personally, I prefer more parallelism to the 17th and the 18th, so why not "the pepsi generation"? Happy holidays, y'all.
