Dispute Tag removed[edit]

This article needs some sourcing, an anonymous editor IP address 70.240.13.248, has added quite a bit of information that strikes me as questionable- now I may be very uninformed and wrong to question the information, but it strikes me as odd. In particuliar the information of tenure at Yale seems flawed, or retrohistorical. The writer says it was a highly noted happening (Pangle getting denied tenure, and the issue about 'Straussians), then they should try to add sources to verify this either by citation or hyperlink to article on the web- not just mention the publications the writer credits with reporting on the issue. This naming with of publications is almost worse than having no sources since it gives the inexperienced reader a false sense of authority.

I went to University of Toronto and took an undergrad course taught by Pangle in 1989 or 1990- and Pangle had been teaching there for quite some time I believe. Did the term for Leo Strauss students- namely "Straussians"- already exist then (early-mid 1980s?)? Would a Yale University Prof have such a bias and prejudice against Strauss back then? This claim needs much more explanation. I read Shadia Drury's first book on Strauss published in 1988 and do not believe she ever used the term.

What I am trying to say is the article doesn't quite make sense, and there is too much personal paraphrasing of what Pangle is supoose to think, although it does sound like the writer does have a competency to write the material, they need to better source it. --Mikerussell 02:54, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

An Anonymous editor provided many sources, which was the main reason for added the Accuracy tag, so I removed it; although the article could still be improved as far as other matters, in my opinion, it is pretty short and general now.--Mikerussell 16:16, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
