Academic Random Sentence Generator. Professors To Lobby Against It

Read these sentences and let me know what you think?

  • The experience of representational familiarity invests itself in the illusion of the parent-child dynamic.
  • The representational validity of post-capitalist hegemony fails to penetrate the myths obscuring the totalization of the culture industry.
  • The logic of teleological narrative thematizes the cooptation of disciplinary boundaries.

Are they written by some pointy-headed academic, or by a random sentence generator? The University of Chicago has created a Random Academic Sentence Generator (H/T Glenn R. on Facebook).

Soon, Professors will feel threatened by the ability of this generator to make perfectly rational academic-style sentences, without the years of schooling and prestige. Like the Candlemakers Petition by Bastiat, expect academics to come out against this fantastic service.

    This is lame – it’s even worse than using a thesaurus to appear smarter (you’re not fooling anyone) – You mention Basitat, but where is the protectionism here? Professors don’t have a monopoly on sounding like wankers – turn on the news 🙂

    Or our favorite academic one-liner:

    “Liberty finds no refuge in a jurisprudence of doubt”
