Another One Bites the Dust…

See the story here, of the discontinuation of another philosophy department.  I wonder how many will go in this current economic crisis?  Will philosophy departments become the next investment banks (although without the power and importance to global economy, of course)?  Are we in danger of producing generations of young working citizens who are experts at business, chemistry, etc., but don’t care to or know how to think critically about the world around them?  Of course, some might argue (not saying who!) that this is happening already, and the decline of the humanities is not going to make it any worse….

Interesting times.
