The conclusion of last week’s quotation on professionalism.
“Is there no good, then, in the present professionalism? I think that there is. Living, as we do now, in the breakdown of both Religion and art, the performance of both rituals must be carried on if only that the machinery should not rust through disuse of a protracted period. Granted that the machine is being run for its own sake (technology). The time will come soon when a new spirit will inform the machine. And in the meantime the old machine has been repaired, replaced, and improved in many ways and will be in readiness for the new surge of creative religion and beauty.” (1961)
