Gloss, authorsmanship

I’m surprised to find only a few mentions of authorsmanship to date at K.:

FLEX History, Experiences
Deschooling: René Dubos
The Tower of Babel: Diversity vs. Mono-Culture
Taleb, Black Swan

I’d have sworn I’d developed the concept better. When I can get to it, here’s where I shall do so. Meantime I must add that a Google search doesn’t come up with much [c. 2001]: three of the four top mentions are to my own modules. There is though a reference to an S. Freedman. Is that the author of the book popular in the 1950s that I’m citing? I expected an Amazon reference: the date and publisher of the book of that title.

The top link is only slightly helpful: Authorsmanship, or how to review the literature without actually opening a book: with a reference to the McGill Medical Journal, 1952. I’d swear I read it in paperback. Or was it read to me c. 1956 by my dorm neighbor, Bob deJong?

Seems to me that some modicum of honesty is requisite to intelligence. If we look in the mirror and see not kleptocrats but Christians, we’re still in the same old trouble.
