Karl Popper

Dear Hildie:

 

I finished Kessler’s book CAPTURE. What a disappointment. Mainly case studies—all post hoc, of course. And his “concept” is one known by any psychology student: Namely, that some stimuli become ingrained and cause behavior. Wow! What an insight! I expected more of him.

 

I am busily writing reports for clients. The crew is up state, in Red River Parish. I hope they don’t get rained out. Rain costs money!

 

Now I’m reading a book on global warming. I know Popper would say taking measures against it is futile but I find his philosophy flawed in this respect: Should we do nothing? Besides, some social engineering—like the cleanup of the Thames in the late 19th century–has been very effective.

 

I hope you’re okay.

 

Take care,

 

Love, M
