Allan Bloom, America, and Education.
West, Thomas
Texas Education Review, v1 n2 p5-13 Sum 2000
Refutes the claims of Allan Bloom that the source of the problem with today's universities is modern philosophy, that the writings and ideas of Hobbes and Locke planted the seeds of relativism in American culture, and that the cure is Great Books education. Suggests instead that America's founding principles are the only solution to the failure of today's education system. (SM)
