From John Updike's first collection, The Carpentered Hen. "Humanities Course" Professor Varder handles Dante With wry respect; while one can see It's all a lie, one must admit The "beauty" of the "imagery." Professor Varder slyly smiles, Describing Hegel as a "sage"; But still, the man has value--he Reflects the "temper" of his "age." Montaigne, Tom Paine, St. Augustine: Although their notions came to naught, They still are "crucial figures" in The "pageantry" of "Western thought."

Do they teach humanities at Princeton Law school or did you skip all your classes?
