But I appreciate them more and more these days. Their musicianship is so far
above that of modern popular bands it's ridiculous; their lyrical ingenuity and sly
humor exceeds anything of this day. Listening to the show is one of the habits I've
developed since coming here. We are creatures of habit, aren't we? It's one of the
ways we try to impose order on the chaos of existence. I finished Bob Fogelin's
Walking the Tightrope of Reason. It was excellent: great style, lucid, and

5 I first presented the ideas developed in the following paragraphs at a
conference in Bristol in 1974. The paper was later published (Fogelin 1976a)
under the title “Hintikka's Game Theoretic Approach to Language.” I have also
offered an informal discussion of the notion that a system of rules can be
inconsistent, yet still serve useful purposes, in the second chapter of Walking the
Tightrope of Reason (Fogelin 2003). 6In Wittgenstein's example, one of the
players winds up in logical ...

Although he often uses the word to mean comparison or correspondence (e.g., “
every thought is a feat of association”), Frost also suggests that the forms we
carve out of nature extend beyond simple figures and feats of association and, in
some mysterious way,. 8. In Walking the Tightrope of Reason: The Precarious
Life of a Rational Animal, I make a similar point in chapter 6, titled “Matters of
Taste.” I conclude, somewhat tendentiously, “The evaporation of subject matter is
the central ...

While Fogelin's most recent book, Walking the Tightrope of Reason: The
Precarious Life of a Rational Animal, does not directly address questions from the
discourses of informal logic, argumentation theory or critical thinking, it beautifully
exhibits the tools of argument analysis. It is a splendid example of philosophical
argumentation and deserves the attention of workers in those fields. Fogelin has
a sophisticated understanding of what argumentation is all about and he is
admirably ...

Women strove to incorporate moral and thus useful themes in their works as a
legitimate reason to write. When they failed to make moral converts, they also
risked getting unfavorable reviews.1 A woman writer's private life could
predetermine the judgments regarding her writing. To be a "good" writer, she also

writer. Her writing career was destined to be short-lived if it was perceived to be
pursued at the ...

we his followers ought also to do and then teach; or simply put, 'let our actions do
the teaching.' People are tired of teachers and preachers with head knowledge
alone. They are interested in those who would let their lives do the teaching. The
world is almost challenging us to stop telling them how to be believers and start
showing them how to be believers. The reason we see many secular people
challenge our profession today is because many of us are full of words without
