The role played by the humanities in reconciling American diversity a diversity of both ideas and peoples is not always appreciated This volume of essays commissioned by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences examines that role in the half century after World War II when exceptional prosperity and population growth coupled with America s expanded political interaction with the world abroad presented American higher education with unprecedented challenges and opportunities The humanities proved to be the site for important efforts to incorporate groups and doctrines that had once been excluded from the American cultural conversation br br Edited and introduced by David Hollinger this volume explores the interaction between the humanities and demographic changes in the university including the link between external changes and the rise of new academic specializations in area and other interdisciplinary studies br br This volume analyzes the evolution of humanities disciplines and institutions examines the conditions and intellectual climate in which they operate and assesses the role and value of the humanities in society br br Contents John Guillory Who s Afraid of Marcel Proust The Failure of General Education in the American University Roger L Geiger Demography and Curriculum The Humanities in American Higher Education from the s through the s Joan Shelley Rubin The Scholar and the World Academic Humanists and General Readers Martin Jay The Ambivalent Virtues of Mendacity How Europeans Taught Some of Us to Learn to Love the Lies of Politics James T Kloppenberg The Place of Value in a Culture of Facts Truth and Historicism Bruce Kuklick Philosophy and Inclusion in the United States John T McGreevy Catholics Catholicism and the Humanities Jonathan Scott

Side of U S Latin American Studies, Morris R Cohen was the first Russian born Jew to make it in American intellectual circles Highly regarded in his day as a professional philosopher and as a secular moralist Cohen served as an exemplar for what it meant to be an intellectual and a liberal br br He was a teacher of legendary charisma and influence at the City College of New York and at the New School for Social Research Among his students were many of the most prominent scholars and writers of the generation following his own including Lewis Feuer Sidney Hook Ernest Nagel Paul Goodman Louis Finklestein Joseph P Lash William Barrett Bertram Wolfe Morton White and Paul Weiss br br Cohen was so distinctly a creature of his own time that his work was unable to attract much attention in the s s and s One purpose of this book is to discover the sources of Cohen s appeal in earlier decades and to assess his role in American intellectual history br br Hollinger critically analyzes the full range of Cohen s contributions to metaphysics jurisprudence the philosophy of history and the philosophy of science This last subject is of special importance because Cohen was one of the founders of this branch of philosophy in its modern form He was a powerful exponent of the expanding scientific culture in the United States generally although he resisted most efforts to scientize the non sciences or to harden the soft sciences into intellectual inflexibility, American intellectual historians need to pay more attention to how elites relate to broader audiences Hollinger s work is in the vanguard of recent intellectual history and it is a joy to observe a true intellectual in discourse with his peers History Reviews of Books, Who are we is the question at the core of these fascinating essays from one of the nation s leading intellectual historians br br With old identities increasingly destabilized throughout the world the result of demographic migration declining empires and the quickening integration of the global capitalist economy and its attendant communications systems David A Hollinger argues that the problem of group solidarity is emerging as one of the central challenges of the twenty first century br br Building on many of the topics in his highly acclaimed earlier work these essays treat a number of contentious issues many of them deeply embedded in America s past and present political polarization Essays include Amalgamation and Hypodescent Enough Already Universities Do Not Need More Christianity Cultural Relativism Why Are Jews Preeminent in Science and Scholarship The Veblen Thesis Reconsidered and The One Drop Rule and the One Hate Rule br br Hollinger is at his best in his judicious approach to America s controversial history of race ethnicity and religion and he offers his own thoughtful prescriptions as Americans and others throughout the world struggle with the pressing questions of identity and solidarity br br i This is scholarship of the highest order Hollinger s spirited interventions in contemporary debates ranging from race and multiculturalism to religion and academic freedom are indispensable i James T
