"Now we're finally getting to the chicken or the egg question," I grinned. "Did I eat all that food because my size gives me more of an appetite, or did I get to be this big because I've been forcing myself to eat like this for years?"

My problem with critical theory is that it emphasizes the secondary, and not the primary. I would rather read Shakespeare, and look at Picasso than read Badiou or listen to Derrida. I study art and literature to quite a high level and I take much more from the artist's works than from the theorists who try and chip in later. Staring at the century's greatest works of art, or reading Keats, Baudelaire, or Eliot makes me reflect on the world around me and my place within it. I am filled with a sense of their genius and their position as unique human beings. Critical theory on the other hand is like entering a Borgesian labyrinth of mirrors where things endlessly reflect themselves yet paradoxically remain quite dull at the end of it. Obviously I don't know you, but I've also noticed that the people who solely study critical theory often end up quite boring people. I'm just making generalisations and you probably don't fall into this camp, but sometimes they are the people who weren't very good at English Literature so ended up doing philosophy/crit. theory. Creative, progressive thinking interests me, not going round in circles.
The masters I'm doing is actually based on theories and interpretations so I have a reasonable working knowledge of them. However, they are just tools, and to concentrate on them is to mistake the scaffolding for the object. It's almost a mystical thing, mistaking the ego's outer layers for the essence within.
Basically I would rather read an article by an art historian with a knowledge of continental philosophy, than a professor of continental philosophy trying to write on art. Those kind of articles are never very good. Yes, it makes you an "informed academic" - and I know some very smart people going down the critical theory route - but its essentially tossing off to someone else's intellectualism. It's separatist and not very engaging.
