Osmium Are you a lumper or a splitter? (74* d) RE: Are you a lumper or a splitter? 06 Jul 00


And so is the human condition only a function of its ability to apply labels (splitters); male&female, black&white, tuba&mandolin, bluegrass&jazz - and then to apply general properties to labelled groups; immigrants, emmigrants, ethnic minotrities - and then to act on such usefull classifications; social class a,d,c,d,e - and take the whole human race technically forward?.
Labels have necessary but very limited use; where splitters abide make sure the show is run by a lumper and we can all go forward.
