conflicting faculties

| April 2, 2012

“The severe underdevelopment of my comments can perhaps be excused if one considers that the conflict of the faculties is a topic that doesn’t belong to my own professional competence, or indeed to anyone else’s. Whether there can be professional competence on this subject is one of the questions my remarks will inevitably raise, and not just by their example.”
