you see -- i did not even say that i have a poor expression of 
philosophers.  (indeed, i do not have such an impressionm quite to the 
contrary).  it is so easy to generalize.  i am enjoying both the thread 
(except for some occasional anserinely ridiculous responses) and the 
philosophical literature, whenever my mind is able to digest it.  but 
back to the issue, i do not see why the example's making me suspicious 
towards aristotle would have to be, in principle, wrong.     (01)
