Academic rankings. Famously dismissive. Linguistics is presumably over there with sociology.

One Response to “Academic purity”

  1. Julian Lander Says:

    As a mathematician (by training, not by profession), I can only look smug. Although philosophy may be further to the right, dealing with issues like “what is reality?” and such. And there are the mathematical logician types, who worry about how to define the number 1 and such. I had to learn that, but I have no patience with it.
