Well, that’s where you have to get specific as to what your “air quotes” apply to.
I’ve been breathing this on and off since Hampshire College (even such a short stay) so it’s like second air to me. Even prior at 14 I read Summerhill and John Holt which convinced me I needed to get out of public school and into some kind of smaller class school environment, which propelled me into finding SOMETHING – and a scholarship to Vail-Deane was it.
I can’t say I understand every branch – hardly at all. They’re all very distinct from one another. Semiotics for example: the signed and signified thing really hurts my brain.
You’ve probably gone over my head a bit then. Is there a phenomenon from the last 25-30 years that your concern relates to? Maybe I can hitch my thinking onto that to understand better.
Way back when, on a lark, I took the .. that dating service with the guy that looks like the PragerU guy who says “11 dimensions of attraction” or something.
I dunno: expensive but I did the free thing.
First time? I found I was incompatible with the service!
Second time? I was incompatible with the service?
Then I figured out that I needed to force consistency and stop with the nuanced thinking.
Then I got in.
