I'm currently reading an essay "Two years are better Than Four", Liz Addison.
In the third paragraph, third sentence is quite problematic for me. It's saying:
For Mr. Perlstein, so rooted in his own nostalgia, is looking for himself – and he would never think to look for himself in the one place left where the college experience of self-discovery does still matter to those who get there.
I don't understand what "For" means in this sentence. Does it mean "because"? or Does it mean "in the shoes of Mr. Perlstein"? If it possible, I want to know whole meaning of this sentence.
