Climbing Into The Arena 

“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly...who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at least knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who have never known neither victory nor defeat."  - Theodore Roosevelt, 1910



The Stuff of Thought: Language as a Window Into Human Nature -
Publisher's Marketing: "New York Times bestselling author Pinker marries two of the subjects he knows best: language and human nature. The result is a fascinating look at how words explain human nature."

Call number: P107 .P548 2008

How the Mind Works -
Publisher's Marketing:
"The Pulitzer Prize finalist and national bestseller How the Mind Works is a fascinating, provocative work exploring the mysteries of human thought and behavior. How do we see in three dimensions? How do we remember names and faces? How is it, indeed, that we ponder the nature of our own consciousness? Why do we fall in love? In this bold, extraordinary book, Pinker synthesizes the best of cognitive science and evolutionary biology to explain what the mind is, how it has evolved, and, ultimately, how it works. This edition includes a new afterword that explores the impact of the book and its relevance today."

The Stuff of Thought: Language as a Window into Human Nature



Page 8:

  • Mark Twain exploited the semantics of factive verbs when he wrote,

"The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that aren't so." 

Page 84:

... memory research confirms Twain's observation that people tend to remember things whether they happened or not.


Page 24:

  • We are verbivores, a species that lives on words,

and the meaning and use of language are bound to be among the many things we ponder, share and dispite.

Page 71:

  • Morality and causative verbs tap the same mental model of human action.

Moral judgements apply most clearly to people who act with the intention of bringing about a  foreseen effect.

That is also the job description of the subject phrase in a causative construcion. 

PsyOps: The skillful use of transitive and intrasitive constructions can thus be used to frame a moral argument.
