9781517410490: The Pillar of Fire: A Profane Baccalaureate

A socialist‘s indictment of the conservative, reactionary spirit of the colleges.
Among Our Books, Vol. 21 [1917]

Here is a college man who has opened his eyes to the real facts of this changing world, and has addressed to other college men a book that will wake them up if they are worth waking, and young enough in capacity to receive new ideas. The style of the appeal is masterly; few writers combine like this one a tremendous earnestness with an alert sense of humor. A notable feature of the book is an imaginary dialogue in the true Platonic form between Socrates and a rich young man who tells of a speech made by a soap-boxer who interrupted Pedagogus, the Sophist, at the Academe. In the course of the dialogue Socrates shows how philosophers and students are supported in leisure by the "lower" class who do useful work, and that in shutting their eyes to this obvious fact they put themselves in a ridiculous and shameful position.
The International Socialist Review, Vol. 16 [1915]
