A professor who is regarded as an intellectual in his/her respective field for his/her theoretical applications to various cultural/political issues. While the professor can state his/her argument with great confidence and linguistic ability, he/she can't seem to take a position, much less differentiate between right or wrong, left or right, pro or con, black or white; turning everything into grey-matter. This phenomenon can be attributed to covering his/her own ass, academically speaking.
