who is satz?

Unread post

Hi there! I am satz, though Ezboard says someone else is...it may well be the same version of Me in another dimension that left me a copy of Fabric of Reality in a men's lavatory in K-L airport last year, just to make sure I read it, but it may be another version of myself altogether.I'm interested in Pinker's book for the same reason I've read Red Queen and Tangled Wing: to see where we start being humans and stop being animals!I am a fan of Pinker's book 'The Language Instinct', and will look out for this one. Meanwhile, I wonder if anyone anywhere really believes in a 'blank slate' anyway [I do like another member's use of the term Bland Slate!]Don't we all accept inheritance and 'genes' as providing a rather fulll slate from the outset? If we take Locke as the beginning of this train of thought, and Hume as its continuation, I think we have to consider Kant's answer seriously: that we are conditioned by our human categories of perception: time/space and causation, for starters...

Chris, I mean that the ezboard computer says someone already has the log-in 'satz', which seems unlikely! is there anyway cou could tell it that I alone am the real satz?
