|I'll check this book out...|
You know, for years while in high school and college, and before reading Rand, there was some sort of what I thought was a "spiritual" evil in the air, with most of my professors and students, and the academic climate in general. Couldn't put my finger on it.
Thank Rand for Rand. *L* Now I know that that which I felt in the air, was postmodernism... For the longest time, I had this sickening feeling in my soul while having to go to class and around the university in general. I was miserable...
It was the same thing in my clinical psychology program, which I ultimately abadoned or was harrassed out of... I was in the program after having read Rand, and they could easily tell that I was of a different sort of mind about things, that opposed their general climate.
And once again, it took me awhile to realize that that "climate" which ruled there was postmodernism; with that as their philosophical base, the industry entrenches the manufacture of false consensus and conformity as the justification for their "treatment" approaches.
