My anti-intellectualism is showing
I'm pursuing a Masters Degree in Military History.
After all these years I had forgotten what I disliked so about University.
Check out this passage from a book I'm wading through
"The logic of historical thought is not a formal logic of deductive inference. It is not a symmetrical structure of Aristotelian syllogisms, or inference, or Ramean dialectics, or Boolean equations. Nor is it precisely an inductive logic, like that of Mill or Keynes or Carnap. It consists neither in inductive reasoning from the particular to the general, nor in deductive reasoning from the general to the particular..."
Oh my, I think I need to lie down.
