Well, he was subversive in the sense–and maybe I’m buying into his rhetoric– in the same way Socrates was subversive. Socrates was put to death because of subversiveness and accepted his death because he knew he was subversive. How can a man who pursues truth be anything but subversive in a lying society? So at faculty meetings he suffered fools very badly. I mean, you don’t expect to be held to these kinds of criteria. After all, you’re not a student. You’re a colleague. You’re a professor.
