Tech misquotes Wolfe in article on psychology
In an otherwise good article on psychology at MIT ["UAC, faculty try to retain psychology," Nov.30], you have employed an unfortunate journalistic technique of direct quote from multiple sources.
In that article, "Wolfe and various students" are quoted as saying that "Vest and Wrighton `have given long-winded speeches about how the human element in science is vital in education.' "
I am not sure who is being quoted here, but it is not me. I gather that the president and provost have spoken on this topic, and I agree with what I take to be their sentiments on the topic. However, as I have never actually heard either man speak, I am in no position to offer an opinion about windedness, long or otherwise.
