Hitler gets grad school rejection

Click here for another in the endless line of Downfall parodies.  This time, Hitler learns that he was not accepted to a philosophy grad program.

My favorite is his dejected resignation at the end of the clip:

“Everything Betrand Russel said about the value of philosophy: freedom from the tryanny of custom and unbridled opportunities for true contemplation, it’s all a sham. … Philosophy won’t do anything but break you heart, crush your spirit, and make you an annoying person to be around at parties.  … Get me an application for Walmart.”

Associate Vice Provost and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.

  1. Perhaps this will be the appropriate place to announce a get together at my humble home to watch Life of Brian and perhaps Holy Grail this Friday night. Pizza will be provided, and there are a few blankets and pillows around, so invite whom you wish. Interest can be put here or somewhere so I can gauge how much pizza to acquire.
