of the objective, formalized visions of Being and of human knowledge
proposed by traditional philosophy depends on a particular relation
between permanent structures and change in human experience, in
which 'nature' is the dominant theme and change is recessive. But
this relation has been upset—permanently?—since the
era climaxed by the French Revolution, when 'history' finally pulled

Sasquatch's words: "In
a series of articles, Dr. (Derek) Bickerton has argued that humans
may have been speaking proto-language, essentially the use of words
without syntax, as long as two million years ago. Modern language
developed more recently, he suggests, perhaps with appearance of
anatomically modern humans some 120,000 years ago. The impetus for
the evolution of language, he believes, occurred when human ancestors
left the security of the forest and started foraging on the savanna.

Paris Salon of 1898, where it was not only rejected by the critics,
but stirred up an extraordinary controversy in the press, as it flew
in the face of the Academy's standard of realism.
