On the arts graduates at The Guardian

Dyson

They don’t really get this STEM stuff, do they?

  1. Have I missed something obvious?

    Is there something wrong with allowing Dyson, who is a successful designer and entrepreneur, some column inches? I appreciate it is a bit of a hobby horse and he may very well be wrong in his prescriptions but, then, how would an arts grad be expected to know?

    Admittedly, more opportunities pulling people in to post-grad engineering are likely to be better, in the long term, than government push.

  2. Okay. I missed it. But that’s hardly “STEM”. Simple journalistic competence, I’d have thought? Which, of course, we know not to expect from the Guardian.

  3. Also, calling Dyson an ‘inventor’ is ludicrous. It’s only one step up from calling him a ‘boffin’.

  4. διὰ τὸ τὴν τέχνην καλῶς ἐξεργάζεσθαι ἕκαστος ἠξίου καὶ τἆλλα τὰ μέγιστα σοφώτατος εἶναι

    Seems fair.
