One Response to Cognitive dissonance?

  1. Stephen Simmonds says:

    cognitive dissonance? Hmm. Wherein does it lie?

    You shouldn’t be barred from a doctorate for maintaining a particular belief system?

    I imagine few would deny a degree based on religious belief. HOWEVER: the awarding of a science doctorate should be predicated on a deep insight into – and I also dare to say empathy with – scientific method. If one demonstrates the knowledge, but is simply paying lip service to this, then a religion-centred degree such as divinity may be more appropriate.

    Academics such as the one you quoted may disagree, but I am willing to bet that the majority would not.
