A new book by Marion Montgomery recasts the contemporary critique of higher education. Exposés of the politically correct university are a lively mainstay of recent nonfiction, but they usually focus on the surface conflict of the competing ideologies of the day. Montgomery reminds us that such squabbles have been with us ever since Socrates was sent to his death after the first negative student evaluation. Providing urgently needed historical and philosophical perspective, Montgomery reveals the roots of our educational chaos in the late Middle Ages and shows teacher and student a way out of the intellectual wilderness.
