"Doctor of Philosophy, abbreviated Ph.D. or PhD for the Latin Philosophiæ Doctor, meaning 'teacher of philosophy', (or, more rarely, D.Phil., for the equivalent Doctor Philosophiæ) is an advanced academic degree."
Wait a minute... "D.Phil."?.. why, that looks alarming like "Dr. Phil".
"Should I be scared?" I asked myself. Have we been hoodwinked into believing Dr. Phil offers advice at the backing of his subliminal Ph.D. degree? Hmmm.
