Harvard's End by Phillip E. Johnson

Harvard's End

Harvard has been on my mind as I write, mainly because of two provocative new books that arrived by mail almost together. The first, by Harry R. Lewis, is Excellence Without a Soul: How a Great University Forgot Education. Lewis holds a prestigious chair at Harvard, and was dean of Harvard College between 1995 and 2003.

Perhaps he became so deeply involved with undergraduate education at first because his specialty—computer science—is of so much interest to undergraduates. He taught Bill Gates, but it doesn’t seem that he needed to teach him very much.
