College Courses of Mine

On July 29, 2020, Professor Robert George asks on Twitter:

Name a teacher from your undergraduate days who discouraged you from falling into groupthink; unsettled your mind; broadened your outlook; introduced you to new ideas & taught you to reflect more deeply, critically, and independently.

I’ll start: James Kurth, Swarthmore Coll

My reply:

Good question. Paul Rahe-Yale Greek historian (now Hillsdale). Lloyd Reynolds–econ, near retirement, had us read 8 great economists. But maybe nobody else, despite some good teachers–Spence, Scarf, Kagan, Rapacynzksi, Roemer, Giamatti, Pelikan,… they didn’t do that.
