On UChicago, Stanford, and Brown

<p>truth, do you have any actual experience of the University of Chicago?</p>

<p>This phrase "in general UChicago was seen as more conservative and didn't quite as openly embrace gender studies, etc." is about exactly half correct.</p>

<p>By my lights, one of the things that makes Chicago admirable and unique is not that it's "more conservative" or "more liberal"; it's that people with different political orientations spend more time talking to one another and -- here's the really special part -- actually listening to one another with respect, based on shared fundamental values about how to hold conversations about ideas, how to evaluate arguments, and what university communities are there for.</p>

<p>The point is that while Stanford was chanting "Western Culture has got to go" Allan Bloom at UChicago was writing "The Closing of the American mind," decrying the same. And the Law School always had the reputation for having a more conservative faculty than Harvard, Yale, and Stanford.</p>

<p>And I'm not the only one who thinks UChicago wasn't as politically correct as the Bay area universities, Stanford and Berkeley.</p>
