A response to Allin's ope-l 3605.

At a dinner in Trinity College, Chomsky remarked that the foundation of his
theory was "fundamentally unknowable aspects of the mind." Sraffa
interjected: "Then how can you talk about it?" This is the trap that Kant
set up, the trap of a fundamentally unknowable thing-in-itself that "lies
behind" appearances.
