QuotationI guess if I want to I can work this down to the old familiar (to me) dilemma of Plato and Aristotle-which one looks at things from the right end. This dilemma can never mean anything to me until I read both Plato and Aristotle. I have never read either-except the Poetics and De Memoria of Aristotle and parts of The Republic and the Ion!
