    Spoken like true ignoramuses. A friend of mine has a Ph.D. in the fine arts; her fee to read poems is $10,000 a pop, and when she travels, her uni gives her an expense account, in addition to job security and a hefty paycheck. Mine (not fine arts) is a similar track…and in addition to the above, we get summers off and a month during the winter holidays, plus spring break and no weekends ever, and most Fridays off, and I’ve never worked an actual 8 hour day since I’ve been in the profession. Oh…almost forgot. You get published, you… Read more »

One of my professors when I entered my Ph.D. program showed up at the office twice a week, taught two classes, had office hours, and went home. He wrote and published in his… Read more »

    “so when those positions are filled there would be 175, not 4975, people without employment.” My original, SWAG (scientific wild ass guess) was 199 out of 200 unemployment. Your SWAG is 175 out of 200. Given the uncertainty in our assumptions, do you really think that’s a significantly different figure? And we haven’t even begun to consider those poor souls that don’t get tenure. And this is completely excluding all the people who didn’t even get accepted to grad school in the first place.

    It may get you nowhere, but at least you can be philosophical about it. 🙂

    What do you do if a guy with a philosophy degree shows up at your door?

    Pay for the pizza.
