Douglas Wilson on Scholars and Truth

“The scholar of today is looking for a more open, flexible, promiscuous truth–truth that doesn’t think herself better than other folks, and who will spread it around a little bit. That way, when we get tired of her, we can dump her for a roly-poly little blonde without remorse. (Preferably with a name like Bambi or Buffi.)
–Douglas Wilson in Contours of Post-Maturity
