Title: On A Letter of Resignation

Year: 2004

ISBN: 1-900522-16-0

This paper largely consists of an analysis of a letter of resignation offered some years ago by a professor at a Canadian university in which he protested at the spread of consumerism to his university. The inspiration for the analysis is the professor's own brief self-reflection (written after the actual letter) in which he suggests how we might be self-reflective about the very idea of resignation.
