More than a hundred years ago, William James warned about the dangers posed by the then newfangled practice of universities requiring that professors have PhD degrees in his essay, "The Ph.D. Octopus."  Alas, nobody paid heed to James' forebodings, which have, since then, been more than amply justified.
