  •  That's an interesting and unexpected response. (0+ / 0-)

    Best I can offer is another reading suggestion. An oldie. And it was a somewhat contemporaneous response to Social Darwinism. Peter Kropotkin's Mutual Aid. The most interesting part of the book is his observations as a naturalist in Siberia, which was then about as remote as the Galapagos.

    The ideas you're talking about and the ideas the diarist was exploring are pretty much all socially determined. The idea that we escape context is a non-sequitur. Science and math can escape to some extent, concepts as wooly as evolution or the utility of rewards systems do not.

    •  Thanks, I'll look them up. (0+ / 0-)

      I agree about context, it's something I was studying a few years ago with a professor who was working on the concepts of Monologism and Dialogism to develop a neo-modernism framework in Communications Theory, but I ended up not continuing to grad-school. Just as well, I might have been killed in the massacre that semester.
