This week's quote ...

Brought to you by our sponsors (whoever they may be).

"Ever since the invention of the printing press, the university has served no purpose.

-- Except the discussion of ideas."
~Alfred North Whitehead

This is in fact a paraphrase rather than a precise quote. I can't find the original source to check. This week's quote (er, paraphrase) is once again by Whitehead. You may accept as valid the impression that he is one of my favorite thinkers. Ponder, and enjoy!
