Do humanities actuallly make us (significantly) wiser?
Or just smarter people more willing/trained to play along?
(Does being hard to write, read, and comprehend really help create wisdom and knowledge?)
(That’s the game, no? Strange, no? How can *that* optimize learning and knowledge?)
Or just have to be smart to play?
(And how did such a strange game develop? Why these odd rules/norms? Any clues? The humanities are *so* strange. Or am I missing something obvious?)
