Robert, others,

Reading this thread brought to mind Oliver Sack's book 'An Anthropologist
on Mars' (Alfred A. Knopf, NY, 1995, ISBN 0-679-43785-1). In particular,
the 4th chapter -- To See and Not See -- puts a very interesting and
informative spin on the whole business of definitions, concepts, learning,
communication and understanding.

Cheers, Arnold

You can cycle round and round with definitions and concepts (which I
really like), but it's all just fun stuff with not a lot of meaning. Try
applying real world tests to definitions and ideas and see what happens.
