Closing of the American Mind: How Higher Education Has Failed Democracy and Impoverished the Souls of Today’s Students

THE BRILLIANT AND CONTROVERSIAL CRITIQUE OF AMERICAN CULTURE WITH NEARLY A MILLION COPIES IN PRINT

 In 1987, eminent political philosopher Allan Bloom published The Closing of the American Mind, an appraisal of recent The united states that “hits with the approximate force and effect of electroshock therapy” (The New York Times) and has now not only been vindicated, but has also change into more urgent nowadays. In clear, spirited prose, Bloom argues that the social and political crises of recent The united states are a part of a larger intellectual crisis: the results of a dangerous narrowing of curiosity and exploration by the university elites.

Now, on this twenty-fifth anniversary edition, acclaimed writer and journalist Andrew Ferguson contributes a new essay that describes why Bloom’s argument caused the sort of furor at publication and why our culture so deeply resists its truths nowadays.
