This fellow has an interesting take on the HLS experience:
so much of this is so joyless, so soulless, the opposite of spiritual.This hurts my Posnerian core!
especially law and economics. and that is why it helps me remember who i am. i insctinctively recoil from it because to me it is the fucking matrix. it is kryptonite to my spiritual core, which is actually, the ethos of the Romantic.
He is right, though, that Civ Pro is insanely hard. Three words: Arthur. Miller. Transcripts.
