Subject: Professor Chronotis Unmasked ( 1 of 5 )
Posted by footlefix

Joseph Justus Scaliger was a French classical scholar, whose work included a scientific method of chronology that became the basis for the modern study of ancient history. In Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, it is never made clear who Professor Chronotis actually is - could it be that he is, in fact, Scaliger himself? Further suspicion is cast, when he publishes the Music of Life under the name JS BACH, (i.e. Joseph Scaliger, Bachelor Arts CHronology).
Or am I just mad...?
