The Learners Actually Teach

The polite question:

It is possible that a typing error also occurs
in the statement?

“The possibility of dialogue is inscribed in the
very gesture of theorizing is a gesture of demarcations.”

(Humanist 17.341 theory)

I asked a friend living in the US for the
“is … is”-construction, he said: the first
“is” stands probably for “as”.

The delighted reply:

Very much possible.

It is the second “is” that I would revise as an “as”.

The possibility of dialogue is inscribed in the
very gesture of theorizing as a gesture of demarcations.

However, I would probably, given the chance, rewrite as two sentences:

The possibility of dialogue is inscribed in the
very gesture of theorizing. Theorizing is a gesture of demarcations.

Ironic that a paragraph dealing with the question of demarcations and
hinting at the operations of the unconscious has a sentence that is not
parsable according to correct grammar. : )

You are not only learning you are teaching!

One letter and a verb is turned into a conjunction.

And so for day 2645
