Challenging Political Correctness At University

A while ago I wrote a piece on “dissident academics” who are challenging groupthink and PC on campus.

Since then, Jonathan Haidt, a brilliant writer and social psychologist, has formed an organisation called Heterodox Academy which brings together academics who aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo.

Here he is talking about the initiative. If it catches on and becomes more mainstream that will bode extremely well for the future of intellectual diversity.
