On a sense of decline in the humanities: The "sole practitioner style" of
work "differentiates the humanities from fields where researchers
work in teams, and this tends to diminish the force of the voice
in the humanities.

and entrepreneurialism: "The
humanities not only produce and teach a kind of knowldge 'for

are the means to explore and understand human nature and the
products of human intelligence."
