Right, thanks. Changing the topic slightly here, but what is the medieval paradigm really? Seen it mentioned several times, but can't remember seeing an explanation for it? Can someone explain it to me?
It's just that the meta-dsicussion of settng vs. medieval p-paradigm cen quickly nudge the meta a level up to even discussing what terms, such as paradigm, to use.
I do think that things tend to stay civil here, and I wouldnt mind discussing it either. I am a sucker for meta... But as is I wouldnt even have the time to chime much in - I'm currently very swamped with work, exams and some voluntary commitments on top.
So it wasn't to dodge the discussion - only that as an entry to the subject it would be a bit on the futile side to try to put words to something already so well done by others.
