“The purpose of a good education is to show you that there are three sides to a two-sided story.”

Stanley Fish is a literary theorist, legal scholar, author and public intellectual, currently the Floersheimer Distinguished Visiting Professor of Law at Yeshiva University in New York. He is particularly associated with pioneering reader-response criticism, the theory that the meaning of the text is created by the reader, rather than discovered. Stanley has also been outspoken about the politics of universities, supporting safe spaces and criticising the supposed value of free speech.

"For brilliance and forcefulness in argumentation and for sheer boldness of mind and spirit, he has no match.”―Barbara Herrnstein Smith
