Subject: Re: BHA: reply to Andy


I've done a bit of debating on this list on such stuff, which was 
extremely very helpful to me, but it's tough going. Instead, I'm 
currently rewriting something along these lines and will send it to 
you when finished (will send you the old stuff now).

One thing: basically, only people who are already thinking along 
similar lines have been receptive to my expression of the view that 
the non-identity of thought and object is a problem of the 
magnitude that you imply in your earlier post. Probably down to my 
inability to express the point (or me being plain wrong). Marxist-
Hegelians, critical realists and dialectical critical realists often think 
I'm making a fuss over nothing.

Many thanks,
