Wisse on Sexual Correctness at Harvard
By Mike Rappaport
Harvard Professor Ruth Wisse has an interesting piece for Commentary on the Summers affair. She has a different take on Summers's motivation than most people do. She does not believe he capitulated:
Why did Summers feel it necessary to apologize, as he did repeatedly the minute the first newspaper reports appeared, and then again in facing the faculty on February 15, and then again and even more abjectly at a second faculty meeting a week later? Why didn’t he defend his views, or at least his right to express them?
