In the cognitively demanding field of... English lit. -- and from a second rate place. A trained, one-lobed monkey can get a grad. degree in English lit....it's not exactly particle physics.

His book on Mark Twain and the Arthurian theme in American literature isn't bad, but being based on printed sources, the research for it wouldn't have trained him in the use of historical source material. Attacking the humanities as such won't get us anywhere.

Well, you're wrong. Richard Lynn and Charles Murray, among others, have published IQ studies of American students that conclusively show that the mean IQ of science graduates is considerably higher than that of Arts graduates.

That't won't surprise me. But I should add that it was easier to dumb down the humanities than it was the case with the natural sciences. In the past people with degrees in the humanities were certainly on a similar level than the ones in the hard sciences. There were requirements like the Trivium and Quadrivium that kept out people who's talent was limited to the ability to talk.
