"20th-century French philosophy has been very popular in post-war American academia, much like German philosophy was in French 20th century philosophy." --Sholem Stein

“It is a truism that socialism is dead, and an irony that it survives most robustly as a doctrine not in Paris, where it has suffered a fate worse than falsification by becoming thoroughly unfashionable, nor in London, where it has been abandoned by the Labour Party, but in the universities of capitalist America, as the ideology of the American academic nomenklatura.” --"The End of History, Again?" (1989) by John Gray
