         Subject: an elusive utterance

Dear colleagues,

I remember reading but now cannot locate a statement, I think by
Richard Rorty, in which he anticipates the day, which he says will
come soon, 'when the neurobiologists do to the cognitive scientists
what the chemists did to the alchemists' -- or something along those
lines. I would be enormously grateful to anyone who can point a
bibliographic finger to this delightfully intemperate utterance. Not
that I believe it, of course....

Mny thanks.
