Subject: Re: BHA: Conference 97


Mervyn,

My overwhelming impression of the conference was one of intellectual
excitement.   I suppose this was accentuated by the fact that I arrived
from Australia - the 'tyrrany of distance' still holds sway notwithstanding
the power of the Internet.

Next to the excitement of immersion in a flood of ideas was the real
pleasure I got from meeting people from the Bhaskar list - Colin, Howie and
Howard.

There were no negatives in the conference experience for me.  Warwick was
beautiful and the food was amazing and I even rediscovered a liking for
English beer.

But the experience of not being able to purchase a copy of Dialectic: The
Pulse of Freedom at the uni bookshop was a sharp reminder to me of the work
that has to be done before we can claim that Critical Realism is the coming
paradigm.

regards

Gary
