The world

Jerry Fodor says, very wisely [LRB 12 Feb 2009, 15]: ‘the world doesn’t mean anything, and isn’t about anything; it just is.’ But we can take this further. 'Is', unthought (divorced from cognition) isn't. The world floats free either of existence or nonexistence; we're the ones trapped in that vice.
