    a shift away from crtiticism, skepitcism,.... - how far away is that?

    does "shift" imply a change in public congnizance or maybe something along the lines?

    Re: a shift away...

    It implies a movement away from criticism and skepticism, but I think it's probably a movement away from the acceptance or expression rather than awareness, though that is without context- could you give us the original sentence?

    A shift away from literary criticism, skepticism about the importance of individuals in history, a general repudiation of the concept of national character was among the results that Higham reported in 1979.
