Meet Max Black (continued)

Filed under: General — m759 @ 12:00 PM

Max Black "notes, for instance, that in a study on wolves,
the implications of the metaphor 'Man is a wolf' will be
different than they might be in everyday discourse."


Alec Baldwin and Anthony Hopkins
in "The Edge" (1997)

From an obituary in today's New York Times

"His daughter Jessamyn West said he was driven 'to understand everything.'

'He knew a million things — it didn’t matter:
worms, plumbing, literature. He could give you
a discourse. It seemed like he could never rest
until he had a sense of control over the things around him.'"

From "Meet Joe Black" (1998)

“Should I be afraid?”

“Not a man like you.”
