In The Hollow Men, Charles Sykes documents the politicization and intellectual impoverishment of American higher education. College curricula, once centered around instruction in the classics of Western civilization, have become smorgasbords, where a class in “Ultimate Frisbee” qualifies as a course in the liberal arts, where surveys in the humanities have been dropped because professors don’t want to teach them, and where political conformity is enforced by professors. Stanford University, for example, caving in to demands from the Black Student Union (“We don’t want to read any more dead white guys”) removed Homer, Dante, Luther, Darwin, and Freud from its course in Western civilization. At Dartmouth, a professor of women’s studies described the goal of her program as, simply, “the reconstruction of reality.”
