Humility Rightly and Wrongly Understood with Elizabeth Corey
“Cultural humility” has recently joined diversity, inclusion, equity, and intersectionality in the social-justice lexicon. An entire social movement is hidden in those two words — one that is far from innocuous. To prevent the concept from undermining our educational institutions, we need to see cultural humility for what it really is and understand the challenge it poses to traditional academic ideals. Guest Elizabeth Corey joins us to discuss this politically motivated distortion of the virtue of humility, and to offer the alternative of liberal education.
