[Xmca-l] Academic freedom vs academic justice?



A student at the Harvard Crimson called to end with academic freedom and replace it with a new concept: academic justice, which includes a censorship component to those ideas that may be considered unethical, racist and so on such as those of Hernstein and Murray on intelligence and race. The debate is open. What are the limits of academic tolerance? When stuff is a fact and when stuff is diffamation? What sort of epistemology would set criteria to censor ideas?
