Dean Emeritus Stinewoolfer
Full Name: Honorable Dean Emeritus, Prof. Horatio Stinewoolfer PhD, L.L.D.
Holding three seperate doctor’s degrees in philosophy, law and political sciences, Horatio Stinewoolfer is the mouthpiece of human intelligentsia in Fictionaria. He is holding several honorary doctors in the universities of Lawpolis, Gaining and Cull Haven. The academy he came to wide public knowledge in, however, was the Edmondson Elevation College (E.E.C.) of New Greenridge, where he first presided over the faculty of humanities, later to advance to the position of E.E.C. Dean. Among his many publications, the one that founded his reputation and circulated most among human intellectuals was the highly influential 2065 monograph “Monstrosity & Ethics – an Observer’s View on Human Values”: An attempt to formulate a categorical and ontological definition of “monstrosity” in philosophical, historical and social terms. With this radical study on fundamental differences between a human-focused structure of society compared to a monster-centered one, Stinewoolfer not only substantially endorsed the political cause of the governor of Reichenfels, Leonard Desmond Taylor, later to be known as The Lawmaker, but also coined the term “unethical fiction”. Shortly afterwards, he succeeded in reforming all universities of Fictionaria with a “Value Charta”, prohibiting all unhumans from gaining academic degrees in non-technical sciences. Within this reform, the E.E.C. was also renamed Human Certitude College, H.C.C.
Among his most promising postgraduate students at the H.C.C. was a young scholarship holder from a northern mining town, named
When the Lawmaker asked Stinewoolfer to take the position of his personal political adviser and spokesperson in 2074, he resigned obediently from all academic responsibilities, applying himself exclusively to the advanced social and intellectual progress of humanity. Today, Stinewoolfer is attending highbrow television discussions on current topics every week, writing regular commentaries in the most esteemed newspapers and publications, and is regarded the most educated and influential authority in the higher circles of Fictionaria.
