Thanks to the several who have written on how to access Florian 
Kräutli's RCA dissertation. As Ken Friedman wrote,

I am reminded of the story of the Tower of Babel. Of course our machines 
mock us!

Dear Willard,

Echoing the presentation offered by Florian, in the introduction by Hans Aarsleff to 'On Language' by Wilhelm von Humboldt I have found the following idea I would like to share with you and the other readers: 'The fundamental nature of language was an aesthetic problem, accessible only to the artist. Speaking and writing are creative activities that must reciprocated by the hearer's or reader's creative response'.

To say so, thus, a new suggestion about the linguistic nature of art and, reciprocally, of the artistically performative value of language. 

Thank you!

Marinella
