Last week I was busy searching the internet when I got a text message urging me to immediately turn on CBC radio because there was an excellent show. CBC radio puts out a lot of really good shows and this one was no exception. You can hear the whole episode here.
Here’s the description:
Universities are supposed to be dedicated to the exchange of ideas. But according to social psychologist Jonathan Haidt, campuses now skew so far to the left that they’ve become what he calls “political monocultures” in which voices that stray too far from liberal orthodoxy are shouted down. Paul Kennedy speaks with Professor Haidt – and with other scholars who have been thinking about the complex question of diversity on campus.
