'The Heart of the Matter," the just-released report by theAmerican Academy of Arts and Sciences, deserves praise for affirming theimportance of the humanities and social sciences to the prosperity and securityof liberal democracy in America. Regrettably, however, the report's failure toaddress the true nature of the crisis facing liberal education may cause moreharm than good.
In 2010, leading congressional Democrats and Republicans sentletters to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences asking that it identifyactions that could be taken by "federal, state and local governments,universities, foundations, educators, individual benefactors and others" to"maintain national excellence in humanities and social scientificscholarship and education."
In response, the American Academy formed the Commission on theHumanities and Social Sciences, with Duke University President Richard Brodheadand retired Exelon CEO John Rowe as co-chairmen. Among the commission's 51members are top-tier-university presidents, scholars, lawyers, judges, andbusiness executives, as well as prominent figures from diplomacy, filmmaking,music and journalism.
The goals identified in the report are generally admirable. Becauserepresentative government presupposes an informed citizenry, the reportsupports full literacy; stresses the study of history and government,particularly American history and American government; and encourages the useof new digital technologies.
To encourage innovation and competition, the report calls forincreased investment in research, the crafting of coherent curricula thatimprove students' ability to solve problems and communicate effectively in the21st century, increased funding for teachers and the encouragement of scholarsto bring their learning to bear on the great challenges of the day. The reportalso advocates greater study of foreign languages, international affairs andthe expansion of study abroad programs.
One of the more novel ideas in the report is the creation of a"Culture Corps" in cities and town across America to "transmithumanistic and social scientific expertise from one generation to thenext."
Unfortunately, despite 2½ years in the making, "The Heart ofthe Matter" never gets to the heart of the matter: the illiberal nature ofliberal education at our leading colleges and universities.
The commission ignores that for several decades America's collegesand universities have produced graduates who don't know the content andcharacter of liberal education and are thus deprived of its benefits. Sadly,the spirit of inquiry once at home on campus has been replaced by the use ofthe humanities and social sciences as vehicles for disseminating"progressive," or left-liberal propaganda.
Today, professors routinely treat the progressive interpretation ofhistory and progressive public policy as the proper subject of study whileportraying conservative or classical liberal ideas—such as free markets,self-reliance and a distrust of central planning—as falling outside theboundaries of routine, and sometimes legitimate, intellectual investigation.
The AAAS displays great enthusiasm forliberal education. Yet its report may well set back reform by obscuring thedepth and breadth of the challenge that congress asked it to illuminate.
