If the former is the case, then certainly his own ideas are prejudiced to begin with, since they are predicated on judgments that have nothing to do with thinking itself. If, however, the latter is the case, then the question is what precisely Eliot finds so pernicious about foreign ideas that he thinks that a culture is required to defend itself against them. From this perspective, the term free-thinking, while it is not clear why Eliot applied it to Jews in particular, takes on an entirely different meaning, or at least potential for meaning.
A break was inevitable, but that break was not finalized until Eliot seized an opportunity to force an extended physical separation between himself and her in the form of a lectureship back in America. On September 17, 1932, Eliot set sail from England to assume for the coming academic year the Charles Eliot Norton professorship at his alma mater, Harvard University, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The extended absence that this position would require would also enable him to make real a separation from his disastrously failed marriage to Vivien.
