Untitled[edit]

The creation of this page is a group project of Dr. Kent Norman's Spring semester 2006 course, Thinking and Problem Solving, at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Comments[edit]

Way to wordy, reads like an essay. The intention of an encyclopaedia is to give an overview of each subject. Extended rhetoric examinations rarely pass muster. I am saying this all due respect to the author, who obviously is an accomplished wordsmith. -- Cimon avaro; on a pogostick. 02:26, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Well, I have to agree that on reading this article it could in fact be much shorter. It is good and well written and I will give you credit for that. But it covers material that should be or is in other articles in philosophy and psychology. Probably what you should do, is either peel off material to start other articles that you will refer to or at the end of the semester reduce the article to a brief overview. Your full contribution will be in history of the article --User:Klnorman

Also, I think that you need to explain the problem or the definition a little more at the beginning. It is too vague. I don't think that anyone will get on the first reading. For the References, use italics rather than underlining. --User:Klnorman

Final Comments 10 May 2006[edit]

Well done. The article reads well and is well organized and documented. Now it just remains to be seen whether it stays or is divided up, etc. Total points for the Group portion = 48/50. --User:Klnorman

Ear picture[edit]

The ear picture at the somewhat end of the article seems somewhat out of context in this article, even though considering the fact that the article involves auditory perception. I suggest it should be removed, feel free to revert if you see appropriate so :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.130.45.99 (talk) 16:09, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Excessive redirect from Meno's Paradox[edit]

With all due respect to this article about Chomsky, the simplistic redirect from Meno's Paradox should not be allowed to eclipse Plato's great Socratic work. Chomsky developed his treatment of the Problem on a special case in linguistics.

Please could we have a proper encyclopaedic article on Meno (someone might start with an abstract from this article), and then by all means cross-reference Chomsky's work 2000 years later, with other related developments and issues (eg on knowlege and belief)?

Request for Deletion[edit]

This article is complete gibberish and should be deleted ASAP. It represents a deliberate misrepresentation of Plato's text to serve the editor's own purposes. Modern psychological research is nothing like what the ancient Greeks philosophized. Chomsky's theories should be correctly described and placed under his own name.
