Dissociative identity disorder (DID):

Dissociative identity disorder (DID) is a mental illness that involves the sufferer experiencing at least two clear identities or personality states, each of which has a fairly consistent way of viewing and relating to the world. Some individuals with DID have been found to have personality states that have distinctly different ways of reacting, in terms of emotions, pulse, blood pressure, and blood flow to the brain. This disorder was formerly called multiple personality disorder (MPD) and is often referred to as split personality disorder. Although statistics regarding this disorder indicate that the incidence of DID is about 3% of patients in psychiatric hospitals and is described as occurring in females nine times more often than in males, this may be due to difficulty identifying the disorder in males.

Reading Minima Moralia by Theodor Adorno. Confined to my own mind for the past few months. I've become especially myopic in the absence of school or reasoned debate.

Any thoughts from the Political Theorists? PJC?

I'm not really that much of a classical political theorist.  While of course I have to know the big names and some others who I find interesting, my forte focus isn't really classical political theory.

Ah.. that's too bad.

I was always surprised how many "Political Scientists" actually detest Political Theory. I had several TAs in the past who would alway grumble about theory. Political Science has its origins in Philosophy. It's a bit like a Physicist hating math.

eta: I think it's the latter.  Leave any questions you may have if I'm drunk PJC when I return.

A wise choice.

I agree that life achievement is frankly, qualitatively "better", or at least, the "equivalent" of formal academic recognition viz. a research doctorate. However, the honorary degree in itself is still not, technically, the equiavlent of an earned academic diploma and therefore, cannot be listed as such.

For example, it is generally recognized as bad practice to list honorary doctorates as forming part of one's formal academic training in an employment CV, etc.

in other words...if he has all the knowlege attainable...ready at his fingertips...what does it matter if it is honorary or not?

Indeed, there are certainly many traditionally "erudite" individuals who have not earned formal academic recognition for "research", or a substantive "academic" contribution, per se. However, this is entirely beside the point. Doctorates are not conferred for knowledge alone, but rather, for achievements in knowledge through the "appropriate channels" (i.e. many years of time spent in service to the ivory tower).

This is excluding the fact that universities often give away honorary doctorates like candy - usually annually.

Anyway, keep application questions to the application forum...

I wouldn't list it.

An honorary degree does not hold the same substantive merit as an earned degree. Certainly your father couldn't justifiably refer to himself as "doctor" despite having been conferred an honorary doctorate.

It's really an award for life/professional, rather than academic, achievement.
