Read Tenured Radicals Revised How Politics has Corrupted our Higher Education Roger Kimball ☆ 4 Read & Download Tenured Radicals Revised How Politics has Corrupted our Higher Education Read & Download ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Since Tenured Radicals first appeared in 1990 it has achieved a stature as the leading critiue of the ways in which the humanities are now taught and studied at American universities Trenchant and witty it lays bare the sham of what now passes for serious academic pursuit in too many circles In this new edition completely reset Roger Kimball has brought the text up to date and has added a new Introduct. Okay up front Some of you will hate this book you ll disagree and without even reading it Others like myself will look at it and say Yeah I ve seen this going on Like media bias some of us see it find it obvious and wonder that anyone refuses to believe it This book deals with the current condition of unbiased scholarship in our institutions of higher learning In short it s pretty much nonexistentThe ideal of University was always supposed to uninfluenced education Beginning in the 60s and before but it came to the fore then the idea of bucking the establishment became the establishment Left wing teachers with agendas became not only the rule they were sought after for the imagined prestige they broughtAs I ve noted about other books if I try to cover what the book covers I won t do it justice Each chapter would bring to mind something where I d think I need to mention this For example the study of the humanities has changed a lot It s become in most of our universities indoctrination than education From the actual statement that learning from Cliff s Notes is coeual to reading the work Romeo and Juliet was mentioned to the euating of Road Runner Cartoons to the great works or western literature to comparing William Bennett to Hitler for his suggestion of a canon of study the Humanities isare not what they wereSo an example from the book do we replace Shakespeare with Jacueline SusannWe have replaced unbiased thinking with left wing indoctrination and scholarship with feel goodism But I don t really expect everyone to agree I do expect many to dis this book like that word without even reading it I can only suggest an open mind and an unbiased read
