Given modern culture s leanings towards political correctness and the constant discourse between the freedom of speech and the right to offend I found myself searching for a book that explores this topic These essays held my nterest from the title s Inuisition allusion to the closing words Jonathan Rauch defends free thought by dissecting numerous case studies on the attack of free speech He frames his argument as a defense of liberal science and dives Urban Shocker into this defense through the context of epistemology a topic I was not very familiar with before reading this book I found myself highlighting uotes and passages every 5 10 pages or so and the book answered many of the uestionsinternal debates I had on the topic However I am still conflicted whent comes to the The Secret

side or another but only by convincing arguments and proofs This book was strong I would recommendt to anyone and despite being written 25 years ago the book was originally penned Dangerous Love in 1993 the book felt critically relevant Ostensively about free speech the books probably appropriately viewed through an epistemic lens with Rauch viewing epistemology as deeply The Tide intertwined

holds upn the face of the holes that the modern philospher Godfrey Smith pokes Johnny Came Home in Popper s theories but to be fair none of the critiues of free speech that I ve ever heard have contested Popperian epistemologyThe books full of little gems like those above sentences that crystallize deas that have been amorphously floating around n my brain all year Rauch writes beautifully
