Popular Press

The debate over the central issue confronted in The Closing of the American Mind–the role of the university and the liberal arts in the United States–has become increasingly urgent and contentious. The goal of this collection of essays is to see what we can learn about the dilemmas confronting American culture through consideration of both The Closing of the American Mind and the debate it aroused.
