If students have their way, it will be all Play-Doh and no Plato.
Students at London University are saying that Kant and Descartes have no place being taught because of their race.
According to The Telegraph, “The student union at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) insists that when studying philosophy 'the majority of philosophers on our courses' should be from Africa and Asia.”
The union claims this is an attempt to “decolonise” the university and “address the structural and epistemological legacy of colonialism.”
Sir Roger Scruton, the philosopher said, “You can't rule out a whole area of intellectual endeavour without having investigated it and clearly they haven't investigated what they mean by white philosophy.”
“There is a real danger political correctness is getting out of control. We need to understand the world as it was and not to rewrite history as some might like it to have been,” added Sir Anthony Seldon, vice-chancellor of Buckingham University.
