Abstracting the reality is usually very hard.

Abstracting reality may be difficult but its absolutely essential. If you see a chair that you've never seen before and you don't have an abstract concept of what a chair is, how would you ever know its a chair?

It sounds like this professor had a difficult time with the abstract concept of a class. It can be a difficult concept but I would think it would be a prerequisite to being an IT professor.

But what do I know? I'm self taught and assume there a plenty of abstract concepts I'm just not aware of.
