The Abuse of the Politically Incorrect: Academia and Beyond

The Abuse of the Politically Incorrect: Academia and Beyond by Steven Yates

I corresponded with Steve Yates back in the early 1990s. I sent him some constructive criticisms on a Descartes paper of his, but then never heard from him again. We even played some postal chess (real postal chess, with postcards, before either of us had e-mail). He is an independent philosopher like your humble correspondent. One difference is that I quit a tenured position whereas he was unable to secure one. A second difference is that he is more libertarian. He is a fine essayist and we agree on much. I have installed a standing hyperlink to his article archive.
