Subject: HAB: To Piscioneri on Piaget

Dear Matthew Piscioneri:  

You wrote that you find unsatisfactory about Habermas's taking
Piaget's developmental model onboard.  I'm not sure whether that
means you find Piaget's model unsatisfactory, or that you find
Habermas's taking it onboard unsatisfactory.  Either way, I'd be
interested in reading why you think that.

|      'You're one yourself, aren't you?'
|      'Therefore I know!  Experts are addicts.  They solve 
|  nothing!  They are servants of whatever system hired them.  
|  They  perpetuate it.  When we are tortured, we shall be
|  tortured by experts.  When we are hanged, experts will hang
|  us.  Did you not read what I wrote?  When the world is
|  destroyed, it will be destroyed not by its madmen but by the
|  sanity of its experts and the superior ignorance of its
|  bureaucrats.'
