A Love of Knowledge Is Gone

The Guy Davenport Reader, ed. Erik Reece (Berkeley: Counterpoint Press, 2013), p. 399 (from Journal II):
Our problem now is that nobody knows anything to begin with. A love of knowledge is gone, and with it curiosity and a critical eye. We have theory instead of perception, contentiousness instead of discussion, dogma instead of inquiry.
Id. (p. 401):
The emptier a room the smaller it seems. The same is true of minds as well.
