Book Meme

15 03 2008

Better late than never, that’s what I say. There are some posts in my drafts section which are almost a year old. iA I will get a chance to cover all these. I was tagged by IslamAtHeart for a book meme. Here are the rules of the book meme.

  1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
  2. Open the book to page 123
  3. Find the 5th Sentence.
  4. Post the next 3 sentences.
  5. Tag 5 people

The book closest to me is “The Cambridge Companion to Merleau-Ponty.” Here are the three sentences.

In the empiricist tradition, thoughts are grounded by discovering their causal connection to the world. In other words, the content of our thoughts is more or less “keyed” as Quine says, to causal stimulations of our sensory surfaces. “Two cardinal tenets of empiricism remain,” according to Quine “unassailable.”

As for tagging five people, all of my blogging friends have been tagged so there is no one left. :0

What a boring book! You must be doing very serious work, or studying something very serious!

Aafke, yes there is discontinuity in time and space in my case. Just consider this comment, I am replying after two weeks! As for doing serious work, well I try to do so.

Well, I suppose you have been working really hard!!!
And seriously!
How often do you visit your own blog? Once a month?

You are giving a whole new meaning to the concept of ”Recent posts”
