Ideas seem to trickle out of academe and into the public forum where they end up being reduced to snippets or truisms (e.g., what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger).

Most people don’t understand where the ideas come from.

I hear people throwing out postmodernist arguments all the time – and I used to find the lack of logic very annoying.

Now I have a better understanding of the origin of a lot of the bad ideas that we hear strewn about by entertainers, pundits, and such.

A lot of these people have no idea what they are really talking about.
