Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology
May 12, 2014
One of the most exciting things I have read in a long time. Understanding how concepts are formed is SO EXCITING!!! Every English major should read this. I can now explain why the verb "to be" is such a horrible verb--when you use sentences with that verb you are almost always going to be using so many abstractions that the sentence can be very easily misinterpreted. What she says correlates with the science I have read on kids brain development which I enjoyed. Fascinates me that philosophers knew so much about how our brains work without any modern medical knowledge. This book also helped in my understanding of brainwashing, and exactly what is wrong with Behaviorism and the way children are taught. I understand now why she favored Montessori instead of Holt though neither is really what an Objectivist parent would want for their kids. Fascinates me that NVC is Objectivism--Objectivists have no idea how much they have in common with the hippies (and vice versa).
