AbstractThis book looks at the the issue of free speech in higher education, and the special place universities hold as social institutions that has as its goal the dissemination and advancement of knowledge. The author discusses the implications of free speech, its effect on faculty hiring, and discusses arguments that have been advanced for the adoption of campus speech codes. The book focuses on a number of real-life case studies about free speech in university settings, and uses these to discuss the ethical implications raised by individuals practicing their rights to free speech, and attempts made to limit the free speech of university community members.
