The Closing of the American Mind by Allan Bloom

The book is a critique of the contemporary American educational system, particularly in universities. The author argues that the rise of relativism and the decline of the humanities have led to a crisis in American education, with students becoming less able to think critically and more prone to moral and intellectual confusion. The book also discusses the impact of popular culture and political movements on education, and argues for a return to a more traditional, classical education.
