Rigorous Intuition

An interesting post on Rigorous Intuition.  I particularly like the quote from George Hanson, whom pretty clearly I need to read more of:

It is commonly assumed that there is a simple, objective correspondence between the signifier and the signified even thought they are separate entities. It is assumed that language is only a set of names for things, events, and concepts. These assumptions are incorrect, but few recognize the extent of the implications. This lies at the heart of deconstructionism, and magic.

  1. Cool synchronicity… I only just discovered Rigorous Intuition yesterday after following a Google link for Douglas R. Hofstadter. Yep, lots to read and digest.

  2. Rigorous Intuition has been a favorite haunt of mine for a while. I don’t agree with how far the site’s author goes when it comes to certain topics, but his insight is second to none. This latest post is a classic.
