More Anti-Meaning

I'm generally a guy who is more interested in ends, rather than means, but when it comes to research agenda design, Vic Fleisher put it better than I could (or certainly did): his "chief internal motivation is curiosity, not passion about a certain policy result.

I concur!  Albeit with respect.  It's the process of trying to solve the problems or describe the regime that inspires my research.

And so my skepticism of ends-oriented research agendas.  A skepticism that I have to admit goes uneasily with my current writing project - prompted by irritation with various post-9/11 bureaucratic initiatives.

But consistency, hobgoblins, &c.
