Several readers have missed the methods which, they believe, make for high quality in scholarly writing. Ernst Fischer and Tom Nairn missed a discussion of the writing on crowds that preceded Crowds and Power. Fischer attributes the lack of such a discussion to Canetti's will for power,66 while Nairn goes further, suggesting that Crowds and Power is a work of barbarity. Canetti's reticence about critical discussions amounts to a breach of civilized discourse: Dr. Canetti may be reticent. What is certain is that such reticence conceals, not a reservoir of silent judgements upon the things that matter, but a lack of culture, be it historical, psychological, sociological, or simply that indispensable minimum of scholarly culture without which an enterprise like Canetti's is bound to be vain.
