quote:
''those who can, think up feminism and structuralism; those who can't, apply such insights to `Moby-Dick' or `The Cat in the Hat'. . .. On the wilder shores of academia, an interest in French philosophy has given way to a fascination with French kissing. In some cultural circles, the politics of masturbation exert far more fascination than the politics of the Middle East.''


Hah! What a cynic. I love Eagleton's views on the degredation of postmodern theory, which might essentially make me a conformist in his eyes. He's a realist and an objective one at that.

Thanks for the article.
