The sins of authors should not bar their works from reading lists

Professor Heinze wrote a piece for the Times Higher Education which argues a students’ task is never to read authors uncritically but to fully grasp all sides of every argument.

Eric Heinze, Professor of Law and Humanities at Queen Mary University of London, has written for the Times Higher Education on student seminar texts at University. He writes: "There is a parallel between attitudes towards the law and attitudes about which authors should be taught at university. In both spheres, we may have grounds to question the status quo, but that does not mean that we should stop scrutinising authors or ideas that we find repellent."
