>Quote of the Day

>Think about the implications of this statement:

The reification of normative values is homologous with the historicization of pedagogical institutions.

What does this statement say to you?

Think about the “The reification of normative values.”

Think about the fact that the reification of normative values “is homologous with the historicization of pedagogical institutions.”

Once you think about this statement, you will realize how profound are the implications of this statement.

But what does it mean?

Absolutely nothing!

Th sentence above was created by the University of Chicago Writing Program’s academic-sentence generator.

The program works like this: you select four words from a given list and the sentence generator will create an academic statement that you can use to show people how brilliant you are.

Here are the same four words in a different arrangement:

The reification of pedagogical institutions is homologous with the historicization of normative values.

The historicization of pedagogical institutions is homologous with the reification of normative values.
