Christian Greer on the state of scholarship on Discordianism


Christian Greer 

Christian Greer has a very interesting piece, published on Adam Gorightly's Historia Discordia site,  on "The State of the Art of Research on Discordianism." It's worth a few minutes of your time — the article is concise and not terribly long —and even the footnotes are interesting.

Greer's conclusion is that scholarly research into Discordianism has been fairly dismal so far; it has failed to recognize the wide variance among editions of the Principia Discordia, for example, or the fact that Discordians used the Principia in a much different way from the way Christians, Moslems, etc., use their "holy text."

The handy Adam Gorightly video, below, which I've reproduced before and which Christian mentions in one of his footnotes, discusses the various editions of the Principia.

The value of post graduate education like MBA has significantly grown in the last years. Employers wish to have a qualified professional with a degree in business administration who can deal with all aspects of management and who has leadership abilities required to perform functions of a manager.
