9781498517553: Western Civilization and the Academy

This volume brings together leading thinkers who offer reflections on the place of Western civilization in the academy, at a time when there is indifference or even antipathy toward the study of the West at most institutions of higher learning. Alternative narratives—including multiculturalism, diversity, and sustainability—have come to the fore in the stead of Western civilization. The present volume is designed to explore the roots, extent, and long-term consequences of this educational climate: How and why did undergraduate education turn its back on what was once an important component of its mission? To what extent has such change affected the experience of undergraduates and the ability of colleges to educate citizens of a constitutional republic? What are the likely individual and social outcomes of such a shift in educational priorities? The volume’s theme is, and will continue to be, the subject of national scholarly and media attention.

About the Author:

Bradley C. S. Watson is Philip M. McKenna professor of politics and co-director of the Center for Political and Economic Thought at Saint Vincent College.

Review:

This is a worthy collection of essays dealing with the crisis of education, bearing on the teaching of the history of Western civilization, and the significance of its resources for civic learning today. The editor has done first-rate work in bringing together insightful contributors who offer engaging and thoughtful reflections on the important issues at stake. Dealing with educational and civic issues of both urgency and consequence for our world today, it is warmly recommended.
(William Desmond, David Cook Chair in Philosophy, Villanova University, USA)

In Western Civilization and the Academy, Bradley Watson assembles an impressive and diverse array of voices to address the role that higher education has played in the decline—and possible revitalization—of what was once called with sincerity Western civilization. This sparkling collection of essays will change the way you think about the future. (Michael P. Foley, Baylor University)
