"Gerald Graff makes one rethink the relationship between scholarship, on the one hand, and ordinary thinking and speaking, on the other. In the process, he illuminates both worlds." Howard Gardner, Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard University "Graff's astonishingly wide-ranging survey of current obfuscations and a range of possible cures should be read not only by everyone who writes 'academic' prose but by every teacher who hopes to entice students into a love of education." Wayne Booth, University of Chicago "Clueless in Academe continues Gerald Graff's long-haul passion: to examine and celebrate the life of the mind - and to push us to think about it in fresh ways. There is immense respect here for students and for their intellectual lives in and out of the classroom." Mike Rose, author of Lives on the Boundary and Possible LivesReseña del editor:
Gerald Graff argues that our schools and colleges make the intellectual life seem more opaque, narrowly specialised, and beyond normal learning capacities than it is or needs to be. Left clueless in the academic world, many students view the life of the mind as a secret society for which only an elite few qualify. In a departure from standard diatribes against academia, Graff shows how academic unintelligibility is unwittingly reinforced not only by academic jargon and obscure writing, but by the disconnection of the curriculum and the failure to exploit the many connections between academia and popular culture. Finally, Graff offers a wealth of practical suggestions for making the culture of ideas and arguments more accessible to students, showing how students can enter the public debates that permeate their lives.
