“Our students are going mad. We’ve brought them into a place where we systematically expose them to the terrors of existence,” so says Professor Rachel Fulton Brown of the University of Chicago in this public presentation which took place in London, Ontario on May 3rd, 2019.
Professor Fulton Brown makes the claim that many students do not fully comprehend that the purpose of a University is not to provide a ‘safe space’ for them to hide away from any idea which might make them feel offended but to provide a ‘sacred’ place for them to ponder the more substantive questions in life – a place to answer not just the questions of What and How but the more important question of Why.
This is the first Chris and John Furedy Lecture sponsored by the Society for Academic Freedom and Scholarship. Just Right was there to exclusively record the event.
