August 31, 2007
I saw a blog entry on here today which claimed that for the average student starting university today, half of what they learn in their first year “will be outdated by their third year”.
I do History. Everything I learn is outdated the moment I learn it, and was probably outdated for many many decades before that point.
This is why History is the best degree. We know we’re learning useless information. We don’t delude ourselves like everyone else.
History = happiness.
And 20,000 word dissertations.
