Famous quotes containing the words nelson goodman, goodman and/or nelson:

    Rules and particular inferences alike are justified by being brought into agreement with each other. A rule is amended if it yields an inference we are unwilling to accept; an inference is rejected if it violates a rule we are unwilling to amend. The process of justification is the delicate one of making mutual adjustments between rules and accepted inferences; and in the agreement achieved lies the only justification needed for either.
    Nelson Goodman (b. 1906)

    I am now of all humors that have showed themselves humors
    since the old days of goodman Adam to the pupil age of this
    present twelve o’clock at midnight.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Women’s battle for financial equality has barely been joined, much less won. Society still traditionally assigns to woman the role of money-handler rather than money-maker, and our assigned specialty is far more likely to be home economics than financial economics.
    —Paula Nelson (b. 1945)
