Table of contents

This is a provocative and original essay. Provocative, in that it compels response: mine ranged from emphatic agreement, delight and ahaa, to puzzlement and occasional irritation. The originality of the work is partly due to its gestation in some isolation from mainstream ideas in the 1980s, and partly to Pym's refreshing maverick idiosyncrasy.
