In Defense of Academic Theory

Mark Dawson disappeared into his undisclosed location about six months ago, presumably to deal with AAAs secret plan to save the discipline from the Mayan Apocalypse.  Presumably this is how he is going to demonstrate how “practioners” are so much more valuable than academic theorists—and still rake in the AAAs big buck!

 

Since he disappeared and is now defenseless and muted, I can now repost one of my favorite blogs, “Whining about Practitioners.”  Guys like Mark gave me one too many lectures about how what we academic-types do is good for nothing—this is the response!
