"World's Greatest University"
It's always to fun to make fun of Harvard, of course, but when I use this phrase here I mean it only partly facetiously. This is a great place, and I have enjoyed my two years here immensely. The students exhibit a degree of independence, creativity, and work ethic that I doubt is rivalled anywhere in the world. Great place to try out new courses and use student feedback to guide scholarship. If you have to be an adjunct, there can't be many better spots to do it.
My World View
Here are my results from a little Internet quiz lots of academic bloggers seem to be taking and posting. Hmm. I did it because I find these sorts of quizzes fun. This one, however, could have added a category with a label for people who get all the questions and people, like me, who are utterly puzzled by about half of them. And look at my results! I'm sort of partly halfway nearly everything -- not exactly how I experience myself on a daily basis, but others may disagree :-).
| You scored as Postmodernist. Postmodernism is the belief in complete open interpretation. You see the universe as a collection of information with varying ways of putting it together. There is no absolute truth for you; even the most hardened facts are open to interpretation. Meaning relies on context and even the language you use to describe things should be subject to analysis.|
