Christopher Ricks. T S Eliot and Prejudice. Faber and Faber, 1990: The author argues that the curious grammar of Eliot holds together a proposition and its opposite in a profound equilibrium, effectively providing a wisdom which sees all points of view at the same time. This kind of poetry is thus the guardian of irony, curiosity and hesitation against the blandishments of dogma and prejudice. Thought is thus kept healthy and vigilant -- a remedy against the petrification of conservatism and the simplification of the left.

George Trevelyan. Magic Casements; the use of poetry in the expanding of consciousness. Coventure, 1983. For him: "poetry rightly used and rethought can become an instrument for awakening the atrophied organs of perception of the invisible worlds, the '...magic casements opening on the foam of perilous seas and faery lands forlorn'."
Stephanie Trigg, (University of Melbourne) argues that the "emphasis on transcendent experience has not always served poetry well, in terms of its teachability. If the essence of poetry is always to point to something invisible, how difficult it seems to translate these metaphysics into the classroom discourses of information, research and assessment. How impossible it is, after all, to summarise a poem's meaning, if poetry is that form in which words, or signifiers, find their richest sites of play, only to defer meaning, somewhere beyond the page."

United Nations Research Institute for Social Development: "Whilst 'qualitative' is often used in the social sciences in opposition to 'quantitative', it is not so understood in this project. In accordance with Economic and Social Council Resolution 1989/4, the concern here is with 'numerical indicative objectives' and 'the adequate level of satisfaction of basic economic and socio-cultural needs in regard to food, housing, clothing, education, health care and necessary social services'. Typical qualitiative indicators are here taken to be indicators that give the percentage of the population...having or not having a defined quality, such as literacy, or meeting or not meeting a given standard of adequacy with regard to some con,dition of living such as food consumption."
