a poem by a collectively unconscious amigo:
The spirit of inquiry comes from the heart. Where it lives there's no need to force it. Where it's dead there's no way to argue it into being -- it demands an external shock or an internal quake, a sense of anharmony to kick-start it back to the realm of life. But don't underestimate the persistence of a static status quo to insulate its static atmospherics from all hope of resuscitance, by all the available routines of authority, parochial isolation, not to say xenophobia.
here are a couple of what e calls "principles of attribution" (poa's), "rules of engagement" (roe's), or "truth in labeling laws" (till's) that e sent me to estow here so that e & i can emull them over.
1. When we say that "P originated the Q-theory of R", the phrase Q should be one that P actually used, characteristically and as a matter of principle, to describe P's theory of R.
2. When we want to report the fact that the source S describes P's theory of R as a T-theory of R, then we should say that "S describes P's theory of R as a T-theory of R".
nb. for those who don't know em as well as i do, e* = sum_[k>=0] e^k = e^0 + e^1 + e^2 + e^3 + ... i hope that was interesting and/or useful to y'all. 0*
