La crítica y sus excesos

“Nobody would be so foolish as to deny the value of a critical attitude toward things, but surely it is a little wanton to say that “ceaseless criticism, from without as well as from within, is necessary for the university’s health”: ceaseless criticism never did anyone or anything any good; it unnerves the individual and distracts the institution.”

Michael Oakeshott, The Universities (1949)

*Lección conservadora sobre los límites saludables de toda crítica. Porque, como bien sabe todo conservador, las virtudes del pensamiento no son necesariamente las virtudes de la vida en comunidad.
