A Few Words for Today

I don’t know the context because I’m in the middle of the post, but here’s Timothy Burke:

…the kind of work that I think all scholars ought to try and pull off at some point in their career, even in short form: a readable, lucid synthesis of scholarship (and scholarly debates) on a topic they know well.

I’d agree that the products of such work are under-appreciated and under-provided.  This is both a cause and symptom of my concern about philosophy’s place in a broader intellectual culture.
