Awesome! I find myself being blown away by what he says, when he said it, quite a bit too. Good stuff! Also, congratulations on the birth of your son. Pretty momentous.

Just discovered your blog today and I find it to be quite good. I don't know Kuhn, but I've spent a fair bit of time with Cassirer. Have you read him? His Philosophy of Symbolic Forms and Essay on Man (and Myth of the State...but now I'm giving too many book suggestions!) have something to say about this. Particularly in that there are always elements of myth making their way into the other symbolic forms (art, language, science, etc). A tension is always existing between these forms, so that, to take them as wholly separate and unaffected, is itself already supposing a myth. (perhaps it might be said that I am saying that from a mythical presupposition-exactly. You can't get out of it, only, maybe, become aware of it) Anyway, if you haven't, check Cassirer out! Peace.
