Immanuel Kant
"The Limits to Scientific Knowledge"
Workshop at the Santa Fe Institute, 1994
Patrick Suppes, a philosopher from Stanford, kept interrupting the discussion to point out that Kant, in his discussion of antinomies, anticipated virtually all the problems they were wrestling with at the workshop. Finally, when Suppes brought up yet another antinomy, someone shouted, "No more Kant!" Suppes protested that there was just one more antinomy he wanted to mention that was really very important, but his colleagues shouted him down. (No doubt they did not want to be reminded that for the most part they were merely restating, with newfangled jargon and metaphors, arguments set forth long ago not only by Kant but even by the ancient Greeks.)
