Stanley Fish

Stanley Fish has been writing a series of blog posts for the New York Times that are a.) exactly what I think, and b.) coincidentally, excellent. Check out the latest here. His recurring theme is that higher education is separate from politics and, as such, carries no moral obligations to come down on one side of the argument or the other. This is remarkably similar to what I see as the central tenant of therapy: examine the issue at hand without the pressing requirement to form a judgment and take action. How else would we be able to construct a balanced and considered opinion? What a relief it would be to live in a world where we all took a moment to educate ourselves impartially before leaping into action.
