    Exactly. This paper I've mentioned is a discussion of the way postmodernism
    has rejected rationality and philosophy. I see the MoQ and elements of ZAMM
    as a way to preserve the strengths of western philosophy while allowing the
    insights of postmodernism to correct some of the problems. Amazingly, some
    of the more problematic parts of postmodernism get "corrected", too.

    I do philosophy and English at Purdue University Calumet, just outside
