    “A prolific writer, his essays and monographs…” Dr Gabb is either even more protean than the spiel claims or the spiel has not been properly proofed. I’d like to think it’s the former, but assume it’s the latter. That kind of somatic transformation is better suited to the Guardian.

  3. I am not exactly shy of attacking Sean Gabb when I believe he has written something that is fundemenally wrong and harmful – but I do not see any of that in what he has written about himself above.

    All Sean is saying here is that he has talked and written about a lot of things in a lot of places – and that is true.

    And, by the way, a lot of things he has said and written are true.

    “spiel”, “somatic”.

    Sorry – but I am ordinary person, I do not even know what these words “spiel” and “somatic” mean. And, I strongly suspect, I would not care about them even if I did know.

    It is like people attacking me for my lousy typing (missing letters or words – or stuff typed the wrong way round), if that is what they really care about it is time they got out more.
