Question: What would you like to change in academia? 

Alan Dershowitz: I’m not part of any school. And I don’t like the current conversation that’s going on in academia. It’s voguish [sic]. It’s often just part of today’s convention. And I like to start with first principles and see where they take me based on my own personal observations.
