YES. Marcus, I'm often struck at how similar attitudes toward philosophy are.

Hypothesis (ever open to revision): Philosophical ability is somewhat negatively correlated with ability to play professionalism games. Wetware space that would be devoted to meaningful reflection is devoted instead to maintaining the right professional persona. If that's so, it's yet another reason why heightened professionalism is a symptom of decline.
