In the Swarthmore Phoenix, political correctness progresses. Whose books should they burn next?
Wallace sympathized with the view that George, due to his beliefs on same-sex marriage, had no place speaking on our campus, but did so only weeks after teaching the work of philosopher Martin Heidegger in his class Religion and Ecology. Specifically, I am surprised that, in light of his views on George, Wallace made only vague reference to Heidegger’s “wacky political views,” skirting over the fact the philosopher was an unapologetic Nazi. No one raised any objection to the teaching of Heidegger, and his viewpoints are still productively used in class discussion. This made me think: If George has no place speaking on our campus, why does Heidegger?
