Paul Strand: "That kind of life which has its being in the extension and projection of knowledge through the syntheses of intuitive spiritual activity, and its concomitant the vita contemplativa, is seen to be and no doubt is, a menace to a society built upon what has become the religious concept of possessiveness. It is natural therefore that the artist finds himself looked upon with a new sort of hostility which expresses itself . . . in the form of indifference or contempt."

Boy is Paul Strand correct. I find this applicable to anyone in higher education but especially humanities. The university, despite all its flaws, is my tree in the barren wasteland of society where I can flock with birds of similar feathers. Endangered species all.

Ed, sad, but true, and becoming more endangered all the time. Thanks for the comments.
