Why Are Academics on the Left?

What a feast of an essay by Edward Feser at TCS. It's a well-reasoned treatment of the reasons why the left dominates the college and university system, and as importantly, why leftists are drawn to it. I can't wait for the academy to respond. And like Thomas at The American Thinker , I can't wait for Part Two tomorrow. The piece defies excerpting (cause I've tried) but suffice to say it's a treat to read after listening to certain Duke University blowhards in recent days. Take a few minutes and check it all out.

Here's Part Two.

UPDATE 2/21: Feser responds to the academics who criticized his article.
