Found item

Discovered on the podium in one of my classrooms:

An 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper, in the dead center of which is typed

method of tenacity - ostrich
1. method of authority - church
2. a priori

If anyone had any idea what this means, what course it could possibly have been left over from, or what classroom use it could serve, I long to hear from you.

Wow. That post actually brought me out of lurkerhood. I was so intrigued I had to Google it. I *had to*. Couldn't help it. Anyway--it's apparently from a lecture on Charles Sanders Peirce, is my guess. All those words appear here: http://radicalacademy.com/adiphiloessay62.htm, and most of them here: http://publish.uwo.ca/~bfreed/020E/class4.htm

Sorry for geeking out. It's kind of/a little bit my field. :)

NO idea, but damn amusing!

LB, that's fascinating! Thanks for the links. (I still don't know why these items are typed in the middle of an otherwise empty sheet of paper, but that's a mystery I'm less optimistic about clearing up.)
