Completely and utterly bonkers!

Do SES teach the meaning of "hubris" in the Greek philosophy class?

How did you obtain a copy this sketch, by the way? I ask because it might be worth adding to the SES entry on Wikipedia, although Wikipedia has very strict use of image rules, mostly about sourcing.

Hi actuallythere,

Waterperry is open to the public and they have tours to show people the murals. I am not sure if this painting is on the tour but it is not hidden away as far as I know.

Best wishes, Bluemoon

Hi Bluemoon. I've no idea what it might mean, but it does seem to reflect your long-held feelings about the School's approach to women i.e. the sketch shows all men running the show! And as you say, largely an ego- booster for MacLaren and Roles. Or in reality, delusional ideas of grandeur.

regards, woodgreen.

@bluemoon

That's Wikipedia, not Wikileaks.

This link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/School_of_Economic_Science is one of the first things the public ever read about SES, and the sketch can be added to the page, if it fulfils certain criteria.

Sorry actuallythere, wrong wiki! But I presume there is still a link to this forum from wikipedia so I will just leave it here. Bluemoon
