Traces its roots back to the Greeks & the middle ages, asks interesting questions, and draws the conclusion that professors have mostly thought their students inept, and students have mostly found their professors to be cold task-masters.

According to most accounts, students have been using college/higher education as an excuse to prolong adolescence and binge drink since pretty much forever. Made me feel better about my students: they're just following historical precedent.

    It is thorough but i THINK it would be more comprehensible if it includes summaries in each section.
