The Ph.D

“A doctorate is, for the most part, evidence that a person has spent several years of his life concentrating on often very trivial, though highly specialised matters, to the neglect of his general education, even in his own subject. It is, of course, possible to achieve this state of general ignorance and particular skill without doing a doctorate.”

– P.P McGuinness in National Times 21/10/1978
