The Damned

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 10, 2003

Another provocative reflection by John Dunlap in the American Spectator:

"In practice," an eccentric Jesuit professor of philosophy once said to us in an undergraduate seminar, "academia is a small slice of hell: the only place on earth where everybody hates everybody." That was almost forty years ago. He was a charismatic teacher, given to hyperbole in his jokes about the publish-or-perish ethos and the serpentine culture of tenure. I recall how we laughed over his expansive bluntness; none of us knew he was being prophetic.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
