Incomplete Nature Reading Group

It starts next week.

I am prepping the post for the introduction, and I can tell you that this is going to be a great read.  Only a few pages in, Deacon addresses many fundamental problems and grapples with issues that have been haunting me.  For instance, he notes the methodological dualism of some accounts that try to unify physical and mental phenomena.  To be honest, that is a spectre haunting my own view.  I avoid half of the charge being a pragmatist, since I make appeals to praxis ultimate, but appealing to praxis cannot hold much theoretical weight without begging the question.
