I'm 80 pages in, it's very good so far. Fick, you may recall, is the Lt in Generation Kill. He's now the CEO of the Centre for a new American Security.
This is pretty much exactly where I'm coming from. Academia is the ground zero for a lot of this stuff, because it is the one place where theories of power/knowledge are most easily translated into organizational practice. So what I'm interested in looking at is how the arcane academic theories of disciplinarity that you mention have been translated into corporate theories of needing to "bust silos" in the name of innovation and creativity.
That's interesting -- thanks a lot.
This is kinda why I'm interested in the subject.
That's not remotely what I was asking.
Nice, thanks. His last point, too, about Afghanistan and Pakistan, is right I think:
"so we are destabilizing Pakistan, a country which does actually matter in terms of international security, out of some twisted perverse idea that Afghanistan matters and is somehow a threat."
I always loved that line.
I thought he was referencing that old classic Aislin cartoon.
