Comments on: A toddler’s view of language http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2007/08/05/a-toddlers-view-of-language/ "A man needn't go far to find a subject, if he's ready with his salt-box."--Uncle Pumblechook Wed, 14 May 2014 19:32:14 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.1 By: me http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2007/08/05/a-toddlers-view-of-language/comment-page-1/#comment-8453 Sat, 22 Mar 2008 06:26:21 +0000 http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2007/08/05/a-toddlers-view-of-language/#comment-8453 I think this is Freud’s theory of catharsis. It seems to have been based on the idea of a conservation principle, like conservation of energy. You have an emotion, which is a thing; it is either here, or there. Put it over there (“out”), and it is no longer here (“in.”)

A kid I know keeps saying, “Oh, snap!” When he reacts thus, he can’t be keeping his focused attention on the problem at hand. It’s like going outside and running around the block every time something goes wrong. It’s just an unnecessary self-impairment.

Most of the time, you hear stuff like “My Child is so Intelligent, he draws within the lines!” This is a new deal- this is *Philosophy*. Give the kid a nintendo and, By god, we’ll be looking at the next Socrates!

And He watches star wars!
