“Conversations with Bill Kristol” is a production of the Foundation for Constitutional Government. Larry Summers, former Treasury Secretary and Harvard University Professor and President Emeritus, appears here for his second time.

In his second conversation with Bill Kristol, Larry Summers reflects on the current climate of political correctness on campuses and its effects on freedom of thought and the pursuit of knowledge. Summers also discusses significant controversies from his tenure as president of Harvard, including his opposition to boycotts of Israel, his battle against grade inflation, and his interest in bringing ROTC back to campus. Finally, Kristol and Summers consider how technological developments might shape the future of higher education.
