Boosting the Universities Image
A university wanted to boost its image. Someone suggested they build a first rate science program, but it was pointed out that it would require a big investment in labs and equipment.
Someone else suggested they focus on their math program, because that would only require paper, pencils and some wastebaskets.
Everybody liked the idea, but then someone else said “Hey, why not do philosophy. That way, we won’t even need the wastebaskets”.
