Criticism as adventure of the mind

...Provocation, that spur to further discourse, is all criticism has ever been. It is not a profession and does not stand or fall with any particular business model. Criticism is a habit of mind, a discipline of writing, a way of life--a commitment to the independent, open-ended exploration of works of art in relation to one another and the world around them.

-- A.O. Scott, A Critic's Place, Thumb and All
