2.0 out of 5 stars Standard text for a degree in something arty farty, 4 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hard Core: Power, Pleasure and the "Frenzy of the Visible" (Paperback)
Well if you really want to get a virtually pointless degree in some arty farty subject that will add nothing to your employability and £20,000 to your overdraft then this book sums up the sort of irrelevant intellectual popcorn you'll definitely need to read. Buy it second hand and you can re-sell it un-used.

Pen says:
So a degree is 'pointless' becuase it is centred on an area you object to? Or is focussed on something other than serving the free market ideology? The ideology which has led Europe to the point of bankruptcy? (Oh no, that was Labour, funding all these terrible 'pointless' degrees!)

News for you - students are awarded a degree becuase they have reached degree standard. Subject is irrelevant!

If study comes down to simple employability, then we have become an improverished, pathetic nation.

But, hey, be happy, The Tories are back, and soon there will be no degrees for anyone other than the richest.
