Ho virgolettato, quindi si'. Ho cercato la parola snobbery sul testo, l'ho trovata ben tre volte! Ti copio i passaggi

This was not just intellectual laziness. There was a strain of intellectual snobbery among the early Greeks that led them to regard an understanding of appearances as not worth having (page 8)

But the persistent intellectual snobbery of the Classical intelligentsia kept philosophers like Plato and Aristotle from directing their theories toward technological applications (page 34)

"... This intellectual snobbery was less common in Alexandria than in Athens, but it appears for instance in the first century AD, in the writing of the Philosopher Philo of Alexandria ..." (page 62)
