When asked for the answer to ‘68+57’, I unhesitatingly and automatically produced ‘125’, but it would seem that if previously I never performed this computation explicitly I might just as well have answered ‘5’. Nothing justifies a brute inclination to answer one way rather than another.

Andy Warhol & Bob Dylan, and Elvis… Funny story about it…

Modern linguistics shares the delusion- the accurate term, I believe – that modern ‘behavioral sciences’ have in some essential respect achieved a transition from ‘speculation’ to ‘science’ …. Obviously any rational person will favour rigorous analysis and careful experiment; but to a considerable degree, I feel, the ‘behavioral sciences’ are merely mimicking the surface features of the natural sciences; much of their scientific character has been achieved by a restriction of subject matter and a concentration on rather peripheral issues.
