Benjamin R. Barber

I went into the academic world under the illusion that it was a place where people cared passionately about ideas, about teaching, about discourse, about reflecting critically. What I discovered was a world of small-minded, partisan professionals, many of whom where there because they couldn’t figure out what else to do. So I created a life inside the academy that reflected the life I wanted to lead. ~ Benjamin R. Barber, author of “Jihad Vs McWorld”
