On the virtues of loopiness

CJ’s posts on the importance of being a pain in the ass… a bit like I’ve been ‘advocating’ at Blogsavvy (and no, that does not make me Lighips ;)

Anyway, you should go and read the whole thing.. here’s a taster:

“Intellectually I am drawn to the loopy, the “enfant terribles” of the academic world. I figure that folk who keep repeating, reinforcing particular epsitemologies, ontologies are, more or less, intellectual sycophants. We enjoy an enormously privileged position in being paid to think and also to contribute to the well-being of the citizens of this country/planet. Being an intellectual “yes person” does not cut it…” [CJ’s]
