Thursday, August 11, 2005David Brooks thinks it would be neat if there were a field of academics that studied the relationship between geography and culture & behavior.
Good idea. Let's create some new disciplines. How about history, political science, anthropology (and its many subfields - as I was instructed to included by my anthropologist wife), sociology, psychology, women's studies, african-american studies, middle eastern studies (takes breath), asian studies, medieval studies, art history, a strain in economics, parts of philosophy, lots of literature, oh yeah geography, urban planning, and math? Okay, not math.
Tell me again why we should take this boob seriously?
