The closing of the academic mind

    M.G. Oprea at The Federalist: “Unfortunately, this is already a reality in most universities across America, where academics and university administrators alike are trying, often successfully, to discredit and prohibit certain ideas and ways of thinking. Particularly in the humanities, many ideas are no longer considered legitimate, and debate over them is de facto non-existent. In order to delegitimize researchers who are out of line, academics brand them with one of several terms that have emerged from social science theory.”

Priest lauds Catholic class offerings at ASU

    EWTN: “Arizona State University’s partnership with a Catholic college providing theology courses to students won praise from scholar Father Robert Spitzer as ‘an experiment in the logic of complementarity.’ . . .
