Why Does Academic Freedom Matter?
Academic freedom is an increasingly debated topic in our time, but it is of course not a new one. This seminar, the second of Wheaton’s St. Catherine Society, will discuss a classic and more recent discussion about academic freedom on American campuses, examining William F. Buckley’s God and Man at Yale (1951) alongside Jonathan Haidt and Greg Lukianoff’s The Coddling of the American Mind (2018). Participating students will be given both books, and will come having read them and prepared for lively discussion after brief professor presentations. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Questions can be directed to Tom Sarrouf at firstname.lastname@example.org.
