Boss vs. leader complete

During our discussion today we talked about whether or not "Occupy..." is a leaderless group and, I believe, found that we were using different definitions of "leader." This is mine; however, it's from a business paradigm.

Davidson_dogma_schem­e

Posting these sections on Donald Davidson again for anyone to see. I think his critique of the use of the map-territory distinction as a metaphor for the relationship of thought to reality overturns a whole set of philosophical concerns.

Paradigms and Debunkery - Sheldrake vs Dawkins

Frontier science is always at a disadvantage in public debates, which is as it should be; but, the debate should be over the evidence; not a defense of the paradigm. -Steve
