The critic is not the one who debunks, but the one who assembles. The critic is not the one who lifts the rugs from under the feet of the naïve believers, but the one who offers the participants arenas in which to gather. […] [I]f something is constructed, then it means it is fragile and thus in great need of care and caution.”
