Wolfe vs. Chomsky

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 12:00 AM

1.  Tom Wolfe has a new book on Chomsky, "The Kingdom of Speech."

2.  This suggests a review of a post of Aug. 11, 2014, Syntactic/Symplectic.

To paraphrase Wittgenstein, sentence 1 above is about "correlating in real life"
(cf. Crooked House and Wolfe's From Bauhaus to Our House ), and may be 
compared to sentence 2 above, which links to a sort of "correlating in
mathematics" that is a particular example of the more general sort of
mathematical correlating mentioned by Wittgenstein in 1939.

The previous post dealt with a talk by Cora Diamond
on April 3, 2015, at 32 Vassar St., Cambridge, Mass.

The MIT building at that address suggests a review
of the phrase "Crooked House" in this journal.

A check of Cora Diamond, editor of the 1976 Wittgenstein
book shown in the previous post, yields …

The date of the above talk was April 3, 2015.

For this journal on that date,  see a link, "by Steven H. Cullinane,"
in yesterday's post Core Statements.
