Office of University Publications, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Jan 1, 1998 - Education - 352 pages
“The University of Wisconsin should ever encourage that continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found.” This book commemorates and sets in current context the famous statement defending academic freedom issued by the University’s Board of Regents in 1894.
Thirty contributors—faculty, students, alumni, university officials, and citizens—examine the origins of the statement and its meaning today, including issues of free speech, hate speech codes, due process, and intellectual property rights.
