Hard and Soft (2)

Here is an example of linguist who is able to contextualize an intellectual debate in broad terms, looking not just at the empirical evidence for knowledge, but at how we claim to know what we know. Few people can do this as quickly and accessibly as Liberman. Those are the kind of "chops" I was trying to get at in my previous post.

Liberman has serious chops, that's for sure. And without ever saying it directly, he is really good at identifying bullshit.
