Susan Jacoby interview - Part 2 listen04/07/08 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:
Susan Jacoby’s new book, The Age of American Unreason, is her attack on an America that is losing its intellectual standards. In its tone, it could be considered one of a series of books written over the years by academics who mourn the country’s basic lack of knowledge slipping every year.
It’s the type of book that both liberals and conservatives have written in the past. In fact, as Jacoby writes, seemingly it’s one place where those on all ideological stripes can come together. But Jacoby tells WMNF that’s not the case.
We’ll air the final part of this interview later this week on the Evening News.
