It was better for him, in his situation, trying to build a systematized
The classic/romantic split is still a good one, though. And it's still
useful in many ways, including the context of ZMM. I'd say it still has a
lot of use in the MoQ, even if it's not the primary division.
static/Dynamic is a more metaphysical distinction, it's true. I'd say that
