Fodor, by Pyke

Jerry Fodor, New York City, 20 March 2003
"To the best of my recollection, I became a philosopher because my parents wanted me to become a lawyer. It seems to me, in retrospect, that there was much to be said for their suggestion. On the other hand, many philosophers are quite good company; the arguments they use are generally better than the ones that lawyers use; l and we do get to go to as many faculty meetings as we like at no extra charge.
