Scholars are Morons

9 Dec

Here are two quotes from a page of the social sciences that I’m being forced to read:

‎The language of liminal culture is characterised by a ‘dialectic of culture and identification’ that has neither binary nor hierarchical clarity. Its speech is disjunctive and multiaccentual.

And

It features ‘minimal rationality’ as a dialogic process that ‘attempts to track displacements and realignments that are the effects of cultural antagonisms and articulations — subverting the rationale of the hegemonic moment and relocating alternative, hybrid states of cultural negotiation.’

Clever people are sometimes the stupidest.
