History Final: Ultimate Mechanism for Building True Wisdom or Intellectuality
5.Bob Dylan would write a song which would elucidate the argument that academic knowledge was the ultimate mechanism for building true wisdom or intellectuality.
Like A Trolling Student
Once upon a time you studied so hard
You threw the teachers a paper in your prime, didn’t you?
People’d call, say, “Beware ya’ll, you’re bound to fall”
You thought they were all kiddin’ you
You used to laugh about “imitation of imitation” (Sontag 3).
Everybody that was speakin’ out
Now you don’t study so well
Now you don’t seem to tell
About having to be studying for your next test
How does it feel...
The end:
Sontag: I feel the same way. It’s great that we could share these interpretations of our own.
Said: Perhaps we should exchange phone numbers as I’d love for you to attend some of my lectures.
Sontag: I think that’s a great idea.
Said: In a world gone mad, finding interpretation devoid of the prejudicial context is a lot of work.
Sontag: It is our collective objective, for the sake of true intellect.
