Re: Can i justify

It's perfectly acceptable to miss a certain proportion of classes per term. I only ended up doing 2/3 hours a week in my 2nd and 3rd years, and I still didn't attend approximately 10% of classes per subject.

Re: Can i justify

If you'd paid attention in your LitCrit class you'd realise that the context of justification is completely subjective to the current observer, and that any claim by the narrator to occupy a position from which an attempt at greater objectivity than his audience can feasibly be sustained is a symptom of a maladjusted meta-narrative reminiscent of a pre-New-Critcism paradigm which has been systematically exploded by Derrida.

English is truly the worst ever subject.

Politics however, is ace.

I think he got it from here duder. Don't worry, I don't attend most of my classes either deffeh. That's more to do with the fact that someone going back over the same stuff you read 2 years ago isn't exactly oh my god fun. Oh and english is cool, just done badly.


PS Derrida for red



PPS I actually read what nod said and that actually makes sense, bar the fact his content is gibberish. Meta-neo-anarcho-pre-marxist-contextual conflicts in a paradigmatical dimension subjectively dependent on the systematic deconstruction of objectivism from a massive wikid see how many times you can insert the word penis in your essays without being noticed, believe me it's the only stimulation you'll get perspective.



PPPS Just use the words socially maladjusted to describe everything. Theoretically you can't be wrong as you just level the same accusation at anyone who criticises you.

I don't think I could get away with skipping classes. Maybe if I was in some liberal arts program or something, but I'm having enough trouble in my engineering courses as it is.

Re: Can i justify

nah i didnt bother going.

Im cool so long as i dont miss 33% of my english classes, i think its 3 strikes and your out of media studies.

Couldnt really be bothered today, even though all ive done is sat around. Everything seems like a chore today, playing ff7 (6th time, i know), trying to get my new computer to actually work, throwing some darts. My arms and my head feels heavy. Its just a bitch that ive been cursed with an inability to sleep while its light.

I have a feeling I'm already up to that 33% mark in my history of philosophy classes.



PS So glad I chose not to do engineering.

Re: Can i justify

one of my mates does 9 - 5 every weekday, plus work when he gets home
he does more than me and i work full time
(there again, to put things in perspective, he is doing his PhD in chemistry, so work ++ was always on the cards)

Maybe it's different for people doing some natural science or something, but I found it infinitely better to just plough through the reading list than wasting my time on the lecture.

As a matter of interest during your various courses did you meet many non-left wing lecturers? And if so, can you remember a rough ratio? Just wondering as half of my courses are likely to be the same as yours.

Depends what you mean by "non-left wing". By your standards, they'd have all been left-wing.

The only right-wing (or rather, pro-market) lecturer I've ever had was for Environmental Politics. The class degenerated into an argument with him every single week (there was me and some girl who advocated the abolition of industrial society and return to primitive society). The lecturer never really came out and advocated anything. I recently had a lecture with Julian LeGrand who seems to be in favour with Mr Blair, and advocates more competetion in the health-service and stuff. Not exactly Ayn Rand's bitter right-wing brother though.

There's been a few Marxists (one quite attractive young lady who supervised my dissertation who seemed to own every single copy of New Left Review on her wall), and one guy who in the middle of a lecture of global politics started ranting about the evil of American imperialism to the point where he had to go and sit down.

The rest have been smug liberals of various kinds, vaguely left wing - sneering at authotarian trends or Blairite banality, but the lot of them wouldn't know a picket line from their arsehole.

If I was in your classes, I'd skip them too.

And I'm liberal.

Hay I acknowledge that I'm more (economic) right wing than Adolf Hitler.

One pro-market lecturer? Mother of ****ing christ. (You better have mocked rousseau in that class if she advocated the return to pre-industrial society)

I refuse to believe you've met an attractive marxist. The concept defies all rational belief. Looks like my classes are nothing unusual and I'm in for the long haul then.

Most people who like to think they're liberal just pick it as an ideology because it's convenient and usually requires little thought or justification.

Re: Can i justify

To be honest, i havent met a pro-tory lecturer/tutor - and you know what, im seriously struggling to think of any pro-tory people besides my crazy uncle jim ive ever met in real life.

Yes, i have a distorted view what with this being Scotland, but there is such an immese tribal feeling against the Tories here you have to live with to experience. To all the people ive grown up with, Conservatism has never ever been an option, they are "the enemy". And i live in a middle class area of Glasgow.

Sometimes i wonder if Tories actually exist. But then i wake from that wonderful dream

Since I'm currently technically paid to attend university (one day a week) I now attend all my classes. Because it's a depressingly "vocational" subject, the people are even stupider.

The lecturers are allegedly top of their field and constantly refer to how they advised X* last week, but they're still idiots.

* Where X is some twattish minister or somesuch

JBG : She was attractive, honest! Although she was annoyingly New Left, was far too interested in structuralism and such. Most lecturers in the UK/Europe are leftists though, as are most people who've given the subject any real thought . Bizarre right wing trends only exist in States, generally.
