I' m interested why Leslie does not think words such like neuter,   
outside, or disaster are not concepts.  Is this because we have certain   
concepts about concepts that would not permit these words to belong to   
conceptualisation?  I feel there is something right about what Leslie   
says, and yet at the same time I worry that if we give up the concept of   
concepts altogether that we are left with silence and mysticism.  But   
perhaps this is a false opposition of conceptual thought itself?
