I think it was John Cobb who once observed that we tend to make fun of those scholastic scholars who had nothing better to do than sit around arguing about how many angels could dance on the head of a pin while at the same time we ignore the preoccupations with the trivial that characterize so much of academia today. I would carry that observation one step farther and assert that preoccupations with the trivial have come to characterize our national life.
