Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king's
horses, And all the king's men, Couldn't put Humpty together again. The earth we
live on is looking more and more like a cracked egg all the time, and the rhyme
from our childhood about Humpty Dumpty can express very well our despair
about putting it back together. All the king's horses and all the king's men—all the
well-meaning scientists, politicians, public servants, and business people, and

According to the Humpty Dumpty principle of semantic wages we owe the word "
romanticism" a good deal of extra pay ; we have made it do such a lot of overtime
work by meaning so many things. We even insist that, since the word exists, it
must stand for something real prior to our isolation of that something, and we
have labored to divine that arcane meaning. We generally lop off a period of time,
variously and arbitrarily determined, presuming it to be infused with some
identifying ...

Who is master, Humpty Dumpty or Humpty Dumpty's language?1 Mr. MacKay2
compares some things I said about definite descriptions and reference3 to
Humpty Dumpty's theory of meaning. In doing so, I think the principle he draws
from Humpty Dumpty's conversation with Alice is that the conventions of one's
language dictate the meaning of one's words, and intentions are powerless to
intervene. Since “glory” does not mean “a nice knockdown argument” in the
language Humpty ...

We observed how those arguments commit the Humpty Dumpty Fallacy by
relying on the fallacious principle of compositional reversibility. We noted that just
because something is now in pieces, it does not follow that those pieces
correspond to permanent or previously existing natural elements or divisions of
that thing. That is why one cannot confidently argue from post-dissociative (or
post-operative) divisions of the self to pre-dissociative (or pre-operative) divisions
. But some familiar ...

When I use a word" Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, " it means just
what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less." " The question is," said Alice, "
whether you can make words mean so many different things." " The question is,"
said Humpty Dumpty, " which is to be master — that's all." Lewis Carroll : Through
the Looking-glass It is advisable in any subject to begin by defining the terms
which are to be used. This is particularly important in probability theory, in which

Zipf assumed that human behavior in general is based on the principle of least
effort. If the principle of least effort were fully realized in a language, there would
be only one word in that language, which word would be constantly repeated. Of
course that extension ad absurdum of Humpty Dumpty's principle would render
language incomprehensible and thus useless, because there is an opposing
need for language to be explicit. If this principle of explicitness were fully realized,
