I reject the either/or premise of this argument, and in general the way this entire issue is being framed here in Canada, and in other streams. Very convenient to set the terms for what one wants and handily reject anything that seems to rattle that. Nuance is I believe what I’m calling for. More, not less rigor, sharper, more penetrating critiques, more evaluative criticism, a broader perspective, more illumination, more context. More discussion about what makes something excellent, in fact, why? What is at work in it?
