American logician

There are many ways to explore unfamiliar territory: you can go with an experienced guide, you can go by yourself or with others along well marked trails, or you can go alone or with a friend through uncharted territory. Each has its own rewards and drawbacks. If you prefer the uncharted territory, with its rewards and pitfalls, then research may be for you.

TOPICS: research
