A ruined temple of ethics named the “Temple of Decision” and built in honour of John Bruce, Professor of Logic, by Onesiphorus Tyndall Bruce of Falkland.
Onesiphorous married the richest woman in Scotland, Margaret Bruce. By this time he had lost the fortune that his family had made through trading in slaves and sugar
Margaret Bruce was the “little girl brought home from India”. She was an illegitimate child. Her Indian mother has been lost to history.
When I chatted with Onesiphorus yesterday in the “Temple of Decision” he asked me if ethics had perhaps been overlooked by rather too much of “modern science”?
