Replying to LO22728 --

hi steve

you are helping me to fill in the lines between the thoughts as I puzzle
through this.

First, let us agree for the example that the Ph.D. is again awarded on
creative leaps of significance rather than on proceedural steps up some
ladder. I would then say that a person of such scholarship is, as you have
argued, a person with a strong disciplinary command. That person may
choose to be cloistered amongst disciplinary colleagues providing a strong
center of content specific learning rather than a shallow, hollow, center
of person with both lesser creativity and less focus on the disciplinary

This level, though, may have the ability to effectively understand the
"master" works and to place these in a larger perspective- the educators
and interpreters and not the creators. Their roll becomes redefined
