Virtual University

PrintFriendly and PDF

First created for our fraternal site Cyrano’s JournalVIRTUAL UNIVERSITY is a space specifically devoted to materials that people should have acquired in college but for a variety of reasons, including the degradation of higher education in the United States  (making it more “vocational”), and the strong bourgeois bias that permeates all disciplines, never did.  Stay tuned, as we are still working on a very large curriculum backlog and more essays of lasting quality may be posted at any time.
