Jacobs and this book merit a wider set categories
I believe that this book is a notable work for its contribution to areas like moral philosophy, cultural anthropology, and memetic evolution, etc. But what is needed are verifiable sources to cite before it would be approriate to put this publication or Jane Jacobs into other categories. If anyone wanted to do a little research, this might be an area. SteveWolfer 18:56, 30 September 2006 (UTC)
I created a good start for the article, but some areas are real skimpy - like a description of the conflicts arising out of following a percept from an opposing syndrome. And I don't have any quotes or references from outside sources or book reviews. I hope others will hop on in and make improvements and additions. SteveWolfer 18:59, 30 September 2006 (UTC)
It is a great book and deserves better treatment. I note that the article suggests that Jacobs actually holds the positions advocated by participants in a dialog, and that is by no means obvious. Plato used dialog in a similar way and we do not necessarily attribute positions introduced in the dialog to Plato himself. We are meant to continue the dialog, to take part. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 22:54, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
