What Snowflakes Get Right

Free Speech, Truth, and Equality on Campus

Ulrich Baer

  • Reframes the debate about free speech on university campuses around the principle of equality
  • Draws on both philosophical texts and the author's experience as a university administrator to suggest ways in which universities should intervene in debates about free speech
  • Engages with current issues and social movements on university campuses
  • Argues that university students' criticism of free speech absolutism in fact reveals a deep commitment to equality
