it was amazing
bookshelves: nonfiction
Read in January, 2004

I read this book years ago, and I liked it. I remember the anecdote relating Wittgenstein's figuring out how to fix a machine that had broken. At the time, Wittgenstein was living and teaching in a small town. How he came to be there I don't remember. I decided to write about this now because of a "sermon" I heard yesterday (at our Unitarian Universalist fellowship) about the human brain. Our brain has evolved, and we still have brain functions like those of lizards, like those of small furry mammals, like those of monkeys, and like those of dolphins. Unfortunately, I am tired at the moment and not thinking as clearly as I might.
