Every member of one's department ought to be able to teach critical thinking, and teach it well.

What I want to know is how the Law of the Academy numbering works.

If some member of your department can *not* teach critical thinking, then that member of your department should be in another department.

Are these laws intended to govern all of the academy, as suggested by "Law of the Academy," or just philosophy departments, as it seems is presumed by most of the comments?
(It seems to me they apply to the academy as a whole.....)

New law of the academy: every cranky jerk thinks he can see all the flaws of everyone else while remaining completely blind to his dickishness.

Newish law of the academy: every cranky jerk thinks she can see all the flaws of everyone else while remaining completely blind to her vaginaishness.

Which puts "dickishness" to shame in a meta-way.

Just sayin'
