This piece is a response to an editorial in The Daily Princetonian by Gabe Lipkowitz ’19 entitled “There is no art of science.” I consider Lipkowitz a close friend and recognize that he wishes to promote discussion by deliberately taking a bold stance. But his latest article, in my opinion, takes a stance much closer to ridiculous.
While I understand that Bob Hugin now argues that he has changed and grown, I’d like to see him make that argument as a private citizen, not as a University Trustee. I simply do not trust him to adhere to the values that the University now espouses; he should be asked to resign as a Trustee.
These pictures are not art. More broadly, there is no “art of science.” And to say there is constitutes an insult to and assault on the special qualities of artistic pursuits.
Every year, when Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, rolls around, I find myself staring at a list of people I’ve offended. It takes me hours to put it together; I go through my phone contacts, Facebook, and even class rosters to mark everyone I’ve annoyed, hurt, or disappointed. The process has become automatic at this point, but it’s nonetheless unpleasant. I don’t enjoy being reminded of all the times I’ve screwed up.
In an op-ed yesterday, fellow student Sam Aftel offered his insight into the interplay of campus free speech. I must dissent quite strongly from much of what he says.
We need to start by prioritizing our own mental health just as much as we prioritize work.
For 20 percent of students on campus, next week represents an important time of fall semester: sorority and fraternity recruitment. The students who decide to join a Greek organization at the end of the process will likely find that it offers a much more comprehensive support system on campus than previously expected.
Free speech is at once a crucial foundation of a liberal-arts, truth-seeking education and a profound moral responsibility. Consequently, I encourage first-year Princetonians to consider this year’s Pre-read and the fundamental importance of free speech on campus — but more importantly, I urge the Class of 2022 to refrain from exploiting free speech as a mechanism of cruelty and hatred.
Outside of class, I barely notice my friends’ political beliefs. They’re one component of many that makes them unique individuals. If I feel uncomfortable about the direction of our conversations, I switch the subject.
On behalf of the Asian American Students Association (AASA), welcome to Princeton University!
It will fall to our generation to take the action against climate change that we sorely need.
