I was going to blog about a good article in this month’s Atlantic called The Truth About Harvard but instead I highly reccomended printing out the Q and A with the author of that article in a piece titled God and Man at Harvard. Ross Douthat is a recent Harvard grad and talks about the social and academic realities of a Harvard education. “Elite meritocratic ennui may not be the most urgent social problem on the national agenda today, but in mapping its contours, Douthat makes an intriguing contribution to the ongoing conversation about the skills, ideals, and affiliations we choose to value most as a society.” It’s terrific and thought provoking.
