John Derbyshire, on The Corner, asks, “[C]an anyone tell me of an original idea that Cornel West has come up with?”
My preliminary thoughts are:
- I can’t think of any, no;
- But that’s probably because I don’t read that particular literature; and
- Having seen him on interviews, West is obviously highly intelligent, even though I seldom agree with him.
I’d be happy for anyone who is familiar with West’s work to fill us in. Since The Corner lacks a comments section, feel free to use mine.
