The unsynthesised manifold

The Plain English Campaign has awarded Germaine Greer a 'Golden Bull' award for unclear use of language.  I applaud the Campaign's work to simplify official forms, but it sometimes comes across as anti-intellectual, and this is such an instance.

However, that's not my point, which is that in rebutting the 'award', Prof. Greer explains the offending phrase, 'unsynthesised manifold' and its relevance to art. Somewhat interesting, though I'm not sure I entirely agree, particularly with the original article for which she received the nomination.
