Re: Michael HarrisLanguage About Language

I compared mathematics to a “consensual hallucination,” like virtual reality, and I continue to believe that the aim is to get (consensually) to the point where that hallucination is a second nature.

I think that’s called coherentism, normally contrasted with or complementary to objectivism.  It’s the philosophy of a gang of co-conspirators who think, “We’ll get off scot-free so long as we all keep our stories straight.”
