Prepositions in the age of Sequestration

Posted on February 28, 2013 at 11:30am 2 Comments

When I was a graduate student in the early 1970's I decided to use "linguistic analysis" as my research methodology.  My thinking was that this is what would let me more fully understand the meaning of philosophical concepts and constitutional issues.
