The University Today

The contemporary university, awash in relativism, multiculturalism, and political correctness (meaning: many important truths must not be named as such), suffers from a kind of "intellectual polytheism," as Arnold Nash put it. There is no quest for a unity of truth; each discipline separates from the others; and each voice speaks louder and louder to fewer people. The godlets (Arthur Leff) are many, noisy, and too often pathetic--despite their degrees, titles, and endowments.
