For more than 20 years, Kindly Inquisitors: The New Attacks on Free Thought has challenged readers with its provocative exploration of the issues surrounding attempts to limit free speech. In it, journalist Jonathan Rauch argues for the value of “liberal science” and the idea that conflicting views produce knowledge within society. Today, many of the threats to liberal science that Rauch warned us against 20 years ago continue to exist. In this expanded edition, Rauch and journalist George F. Will expound upon the book’s continued relevance in a new foreword and afterword.
