The continued war on science

According to the Wall Street Journal, the mid-career median salary for a philosophy professor is more than that of a chemistry professor. Interesting to see which professors make some bank. And yes, I realize that I’m picking my data points to make a larger point and that if I look at all the “science” related salaries they probably outweigh the non-science related salaries. Still, it’s worth noting the discrepancy in the job salaries. Salaries of course, are analogous to which fields are more respected, not unlike athletes. [via]
