Watertight arguments

Walking around the University in the weeks prior to the start of term, I noticed on several occasions two small white vans in one of the staff car parks, doors open to reveal a clutter of maintenance equipment. On the sides of the van, in large letters: “Concept Sealants”. I’m partly comforted by this, and partly worried – I have visions of men in white overalls bursting into a lecture room where I’ve just fudged a complicated argument, glue guns and soldering irons at the ready.

One Thought on “Watertight arguments

    But this is very alarming. Has there been an outbreak of guerrilla deconstructionism around the University – people sneaking around in the night unsealing concepts? Anyway, will they ask me before they seal off any concepts I use? Many of them aren’t really ready to be made watertight. In fact, some of them are designed to leak.
