Former professor of sociology Irving L. Horowitz of Princeton, N.J., recently told the world about a faculty-student basketball game at HWS that was one of his favorite sports moments ever.
The New York Giants' 17-14 upset of the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII earlier this month was another.
Horowitz was a visiting professor at the Institute of Sociology at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1958; taught from 1962 to 1969 at Washington University in St. Louis, Mo., and since then, at Rutgers University.
His best-known works include “Radicalism and the Revolt Against Reason: The Social Theories of Georges Sorel,” “Revolution In Brazil: Politics and Society In a Developing Nation,” “Radicalism and the Revolt Against Reason,” and “Latin American Radicalism: A Documentary Report on Left and Nationalist Movements.”
He was among the CNN.com readers who recently shared their reactions to the Super Bowl upset. Read more about his sports memories here.
