“The Devoted Student”

Interesting op-ed in The New York Times: “The Devoted Student” by Mark C. Taylor.

He observes that fundamentalists have become more agressive in his (and other) classrooms. Fair enough, though those of us who are science (rather than humanities) faculty probably could have told him that having to deal with fundamentalists in the form of creationists is not really a new challenge. What is curious, though, is his swiping at “secular dogmatists,” presumably in some hamhanded attempt to be evenhanded.
