Sociology: Another Field that Needs Heterodoxy

George Leef

This week's Pope Center Clarion Call is by University of Central Florida sociology professor James Wright. In it, he laments that his discipline has for the most part succumbed to groupthink. Many ideas are now "off limits" due to political correctness. You know that an academic field is deconstructing itself when most of its scholars are wearing ideological blinders. Only a few veteran professors who aren't afraid of offending anyone are willing to point this out.
