To get an "education" ending in a "degree". Blank out the forbidden words and all their obvious synonyms, visualize the actual details, and you're much more likely to notice that "school" currently seems to consist of sitting next to bored teenagers listening to material you already know, that a "degree" is a piece of paper with some writing on it, and that "education" is forgetting the material as soon as you're tested on it.

Students who understand math will do well on tests, but if you require schools to produce good test scores, they'll spend all their time teaching to the test. A mental category, that imperfectly matches your goal, can produce the same kind of incentive failure internally. You want to learn, so you need an "education"; and then as long as you're getting anything that matches against the category "education", you may not notice whether you're learning or not.

Or you'll notice, but you won't realize you've lost sight of your original purpose, because you're "getting an education" and that's how you mentally described your goal.

To categorize is to throw away information. If you're told that a falling tree makes a "sound", you don't know what the actual sound is; you haven't actually heard the tree falling. If a coin lands "heads", you don't know its radial orientation. A blue egg-shaped thing may be a "blegg", but what if the exact egg shape varies, or the exact shade of blue? You want to use categories to throw away irrelevant information, to sift gold from dust, but often the standard categorization ends up throwing out relevant information too.

And when you end up in that sort of mental trouble, the first and most obvious solution is to play Taboo. Hasbro's version is not the rationalist version; they only list five additional banned words on the card, and that's not nearly enough coverage to exclude thinking in familiar old words.

What rationalists do would count as playing Taboo—it would match against the "play Taboo" concept—but not everything that counts as playing Taboo works to force original seeing.

If you just think "play Taboo to force original seeing", you'll start thinking that anything that counts as playing Taboo must count as original seeing. The rationalist version isn't a game, which means that you can't win by trying to be clever and stretching the rules. You also have to stop yourself from inventing a new simple word or phrase that functions as an equivalent mental handle to the old one.

You are trying to zoom in on your map, not rename the cities; dereference the pointer, not allocate a new pointer; see the events as they happen, not rewrite the cliche in a different wording. What purpose does each and every part serve?

Socio-Economic Rights in South Africa: Symbols or Substance?

Prem Chowdhry. Girish Karnad. Rajshree Chandra. Manu Bhagavan. Home Contact us Help Free delivery worldwide. Free delivery worldwide. Bestselling Series. Harry Potter. Popular Features. New Releases. Description This volume deals with the political culture of the NAyaka period in medieval South India, an era which extends from the early sixteenth century to the early eighteenth century. While these states had differing life-spans, devlopmental patterns, geo-ecological environments, as well as distinct forms of historical experience, they shared salient structural and cultural features.

Table of Contents

At their height, in the early 17th century, they encompassed the greater part of the Tamil country. Supplementing standard sources by an imaginative use of Dutch, Portugese, Tamil, Sanskrit, and Telugu sources, the authors show how the Nayakas witnessed, and partly produced, a profound shift in the conceptual and institutional bases of South Indian civilization.

Product details Format Paperback pages Dimensions x x Focusing on a range of socio-economic rights and national trends in law and political economy, the book's authors show how socio-economic rights have influenced the development of civil society discourse and action. The evidence suggests that some strategies have achieved material and political impact but this is conditional on the nature of the claim, degree of mobilisation and alliance building, and underlying constraints.
