esoteric

esoteric

释义:“秘传的、深奥的”。最初被用于描述为防止教会迫害或出于其他动机,仅在小团体内部流传的神秘知识。现在则用得更为广泛一些,可以指代任何只有少数人理解并钻研的学问。

例句:
The mystical Kabbalah was based on esoteric readings of the Torah, and by such reckonings it was revealed that our history had been preceded by untold cosmic cycles of millions and billions of years.
Hacker and Dreifus rightly criticize higher education for a host of sins: cost, production of endless esoteric research, exploitation of adjunct teachers.
