About this item

For half a century, Horace Williams was denounced as an atheist and acclaimed as an exponent of truth, goodness, and beauty. In the early 1890s he came to Chapel Hill to teach modern philosophy and to revolutionize the thought of the South. With Socrates as his model, he chose the gadfly method--pricking and tormenting professors and students, prodding and goading blind followers of orthodoxy.

Originally published in 1942.
