Kudos to PAW and Mark F. Bernstein ’83 for the engaging interview of Professors Robert P. George and Cornel West *80 (cover story, Dec. 7). Although I don’t find myself in complete sympathy with the political and philosophical positions of either of these two men, I applaud their rejection of simplistic notions of “safe spaces” at an institution designed, as Cornel West memorably puts it, to “thoroughly unsettle people.” I envy the Princeton students privileged to witness and participate in the debates of these two lively thinkers.
