Specialisation and abstractions

Re: 21: The Editing of Savitri—Was not the 1950-1951 edition of Savitri approved by Sri Aurobindo?

The whole purpose of higher education is specialisation and juggling with abstractions. So lay persons passing stray comments on sophisticated thought is ridiculous. It is better to desist from such practice in public and shun prejudice. Let's not demotivate those who are pursuing their Ph.Ds in Post-modernism and allied fields. [TNM55]

Ideological antipathy shouldn't colour appreciation of communicational idioms and one's own disability or disinclination need not be imposed upon the collectivity. All word smiths are creative artists and responding to the muse is their sole obligation. Thereafter, the author is dead and so too the readers in the long run. [TNM55]
