PITHY QUOTE FROM Wittgenstein: Texts and Contexts

Open quotes
Today, we know that there exist electrons, nucleons and other so-called "elementary particles". Although we have discovered several levels of reality, we are still hoping that the "pealing of the onion" is not endless. We are ready to believe that the "stuff" our Universe is made of has actually a discrete structure. The collective unconscious does not cherish very much the idea of an infinite regression.

E. M. Anscombe, Nelson Goodman, A. J. Ayer, Kurt Baier, Amartya Sen, Brian McGuinness, Carl Hempel, John Searle, Hilary Putnam, Rudolf Haller, G.

InteLex's resources in philosophy and social thought have long been a mainstay of our collection at the Electronic Text Service. The company's selection of resources, careful text editing, and sensitivity to the budgetary constraints of academic institutions make them a model of what scholarly academic publishing in the electronic field should be.
