At this point it may also be apposite to note that, for all the scholarliness he was to display in the future, Klemperer never on the whole seems to have felt really comfortable with other academics, even liberal ones, or in conventional middle-class settings in general. Although he loved teaching he did not deal very well with the social aspects of his profession. In his diaries he often appears more at ease with "practical" people or with craftsmen.
