Safe Enough Spaces : A Pragmatist's Approach to Inclusion, Free Speech, and Political Correctness on College Campuses EPUB
From the president of Wesleyan University, a compassionate and provocative manifesto on the crises confronting higher education
In this bracing book, Michael S. Roth stakes out a pragmatist path through the thicket of issues facing colleges today to carry out the mission of higher education. With great empathy, candor, subtlety, and insight, Roth offers a sane approach to the noisy debates surrounding affirmative action, political correctness, and free speech, urging us to envision college as a space in which students are empowered to engage with criticism and with a variety of ideas.
Countering the increasing cynical dismissal-from both liberals and conservatives-of the traditional core values of higher education, this book champions the merits of different diversities, including intellectual diversity, with a timely call for universities to embrace boldness, rigor, and practical idealism.
