  • Spiked: 'Fish calls this process of intellectual interrogation “academicising�?, which he describes thus: "To academicise a topic is to detach it from the context of its real world urgency, where there is a vote to be taken or an agenda to be embraced, and insert it into a context of academic urgency, where there is an account to be offered or an analysis to be performed."'
