During a recent speech to incoming Freshman at Princeton University, Princeton Classics professor Dan-el Padilla Peralta advocated for the use of free speech in the service of social justice to “tear down” Princeton University.

While Professor Peralta’s comments might have been deliberately hyperbolic, they echo statements he made in April of last year to the New York Times arguing for a radical reevaluation of the study of Greece and Rome.

This new method to studying and teaching the classics would, Peralta argues, be focused on deconstructing both the worlds of Greece and Rome as well as how classics have traditionally been taught in the West as part of wider effort to deconstruct and ultimately eliminate “whiteness.”

Praise the Lord
