Re: [mythsoc] Re: Carl on theory
- Well, all I have to say on this matter is that you =all= need to read Prof.
Frederick Crews' small but magisterial book, THE POOH PERPLEX, if you
And he has done a sort of sequel to cover some of the newer theories; an
Amazon search ought to bring it up.
I might also however add, regarding theory, this quote which came through on
WINGFOLD, the Geo MacDonald list:
"If I knew of a theory in which was never an uncompleted arch or turret, in
whose circling wall was never a ragged breach, that theory I should know but
to avoid: such gaps are the eternal windows through which the dawn shall look
in. A complete theory is a vault of stone around the theorist --- whose very
being yet depends on room to grow."
