Overview

If the university had a constitution, would it contain a free speech provision as the U.S. Constitution does? In Free Speech on Campus, Martin P. Golding confronts this question, examining issues of principle in the debate over campus speech. Golding suggests that the University is a special social institution that has as its goal the dissemination and advancement of knowledge, and he explores some of the implications of this approach, including its implication for faculty hiring. Golding examines the claim that there are academic orthodoxies in the University that inhibit the introduction of new ideas and methods, and he critically discusses in detail arguments that have been advanced for campus speech codes. Students and teachers in every discipline will find this book engaging and illuminating; it is especially relevant for ethicists and philosophers of education.

University Business
A remarkable dissertation of various arguments for, and recent promulgations of speech codes on American campuses. Golding is amazingly fair and rational, as well as delightfully candid about his own views on this ideologically hot subject. . . . Its tight analysis displays a rare type of unruffled philosophical beauty.
