On Theoretical Jargon

'Modern American theorists are products of the U.S. educational system: rarely do they master a foreign language. Perhaps that is why they have invented their own.'

--Karl Galinsky, in 'Introduction: The Current State of the Interpretation of Roman Poetry and the Contemporary Critical Scene' (p. 24) (from The Interpretation of Roman Poetry: Empiricism or Hermeneutics?, K. Galinsky, ed.)
