God and Man at Yale Summary é 108 Download God and Man at Yale In 1951 a twenty five year old Yale graduate published his first book which exposed the extraor This is a marvelous expose by Buckley and one I wish I had read before writing my own university slammer The Bubble Boys Buckley s main concerns are that under the guise of academic freedom many faculty at Yale in the early 1950s were pushing ideas which were consistent with totalitarianism against which the United States was at war then against Korea as it had been for half the preceding decade against Germany and Italy and antithetical to the old American values of individualism and Judeo Christianity He cites specific courses and instructors across several departments whose lectures were inappropriate or simply pointed students in uestionable directions both as regards religion and economics He also explored how the textbooks used in basic economics classes were universally Keynesian and pushed towards collectivism and how social clubs which were ostensibly Christian in nature were beginning to have leaders who were atheist pushing the fervent believer to the margins He explored the fact that Yale s alumni donations from whom made up a goodly portion of Yale s financial subsistence were opposed to this kind of teaching and while encouraging them to withhold money from the institutions explained that too many of them did not take these matters seriously enough He points out that the administration at Yale while claiming they were opposed to the doctrines preached in the classroom refused to interfere on the grounds that they would thereby be violating academic freedomWhat would initially appear to be a simple extension of academic freedom however Buckley exposes to be a ludicrous tool used by academics when it suits them and to their own advantage Buckley points out that an instructor who held views on the supremacy of the Arian race would not be accepted on a university campus not be academically free which implies that academic freedom lies within certain bounds Buckley then argues that when a careful distinction is made between the profession of the scholar and the profession of the teacher academic freedom should be restricted within much narrower bounds not extended to wider application He goes beyond this to even argue that if one s scholarly interests are in topics that are not conducive to teaching ideas which are consistent with what has been shown to be the best truths in practice he may find a place elsewhere but should not be teaching at Yale since it is too likely that his interests will pervade his teaching Buckley s reasoning is that democracy and the ideas beind Judeo Christianity have proven to be the best possible institutional foundations and that to teach Communism and collectivism both of which had proven to be terrible in various manifestations through history was not to pursue truth under academic freedom but to encourage error through carelessnessBuckley s argument is extremely compelling and bluntly he is right The loss of individual spirit in this country has done damage and will continue to do damage for the foreseeable future The loss of religion as a binding factor in American culture is also proving to be dangerous Since Yale alumni bear a disproportionate role in leading the world relative to their numbers one has to consider that many of the social trends of the past half century are due to exactly what Buckley describes here This is easily one of the best books I ve read in some time It is concise and written with the hand of a maestroOddly I must admit it has increased the likelihood that should I get into Yale and the University of Chicago for graduate school I consider Yale THis is because the uality of education presented here though it bears criticism and negative attention is so far better than the uality of education at public schools in the state of California which is at the forefront of the collectivist and anti religious trend that it is almost sickening
