More On Foreign Languages

It seems Hilarious Bookbinder agrees with FLG:
If you conceive of graduate school as an educational process, than you should probably learn all the languages you can, all the better to be well-rounded. If you conceive of it as a professional enterprise, then you should only learn those that will be most immediately useful for your work.

Fear not, oh those who disagree with FLG. Like anything with grad school on this blog, one must remember that no grad school will touch FLG with a 10-foot pole. So, he's writing about this shit with absolutely no experience or any real idea of what grad school is about or like. And given the grade Deneen gave him on his paper last semester, that's probably all for the best.
