The title of Lakoff's book to which JAZBO recently alluded (ha!) is in
fact "Women, Fire and Dangerous Things" rather than "women fire and *other*
dangerous things" (which has quite different implications). It is published by
U of Chicago Press so I'm surprised Jim couldnt find it. I have held it
in my hands long enough to know that it contains very much more than a
discussion of 'category theory'. In particular it contains a fairly
devastating put down of current AI dogmata. On the other hand it costs
almost as much as an electronic shakespeare...
