I find myself wondering if people have hidden motives — and wishing there was some simple test to determine who someone really was.

Universities have a noble mission — to help their students engage with the world as enlightened, active and critical citizens. Implicit in this charge is the idea that university students should take a diverse and unexpected range of courses. According to the College of Arts and Sciences’ website, “A good liberal arts education… demands not only rigor and depth, but also sufficient breadth to expose students to a wide range of subjects and methods of studying them.” According to countless brochures and mission statements, the world’s most pressing challenges can’t be solved without critical thinking, curiosity and intellectual depth.
