61. Doomsday: The Science of Catastrophe by Fred Warshofsky [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. V No. 4 (Summer 1980) Home¦ Issue Contents Doomsday: The Science of Catastrophe by Fred Warshofsky (Reader's Digest Press, 1977; Pocket Books, N. Y., 1979, 260 pp. $2.25) Reviewed by Roger W. Wescott Professor of Anthropology and Linguistics Drew University, Madison, N. J. Fred Warshofsky, a prize-winning science writer, has here produced an excellent short overview of catastrophic theories on nearly everything from the "Big Bang" that could have created the cosmos to the thermonuclear holocaust that may terminate social order on Earth. Of the twelve chapters in the book, the three best seem to me to be those on myths, ice ages, and phyletic extinctions. Admirers of Immanuel Velikovsky will, I think, be almost equally pleased with chapter 3, "Worlds in Collision" (pp. 35-63 in the paperback edition), which gives one of the clearest and fairest summaries of "The Velikovsky Affair" that I have ever read. To be sure, Velikovskian ...

68. Chapter 6: SYMBOLS AND SPEECH [Quantavolution Website]
... Really, only the command is needed if the intent (and power) are clear. Even a glance would suffice, if the John had been half-trained not to sit on the fence. But the little that needs be uttered hardly represents the internal processing, very rapid speech signifies a disturbing problem, not that a speaker can talk as rapidly as he can think; this is an impossible feat, though listeners tend to correlate the two. Noam Chomsky was probably on the trail of such facts when he foresaw the road that linguistics was taking. Contemporary work has finally begun to face some simple facts of language that have been long neglected, for example, the fact that the speaker of a language knows a great deal that he has not learned and that his normal linguistic behavior cannot possibly be accounted for in terms of "stimulus control," "conditioning," "generalization and analogy," "patterns," and "habit structures," or "dispositions to respond," in any reasonably clear sense of these much abused terms [14 ...

... elements to the stars, to galaxies and even the universe itself. This is powerful, heady stuff. But if the idea of neo-Darwinian evolution is unsupported by evidence or experiment when applied to the heredity of plants and animals, what factual basis is there for applying the concept to other natural phenomena? You don't have to look very far in your local public library to find examples of Darwin's ideas being pressed into service in this or that field. The Dewey decimal catalogue has been almost taken over by Darwinisms: from astronomy to linguistics and from anthropology to law and even religious thinking. Writing in 1955, Julian Huxley said that; The concept of evolution was soon extended into other than biological fields. Inorganic subjects such as the life histories of stars and formation of the chemical elements on the one hand, and on the other subjects like linguistics, social anthropology, and comparative law and religion, began to be studied from an evolutionary angle, until today we are enabled to see evolution as a universal and all-pervading process.
