Famous quotes containing the words system and/or games:

    The dominant metaphor of conceptual relativism, that of differing points of view, seems to betray an underlying paradox. Different points of view make sense, but only if there is a common co-ordinate system on which to plot them; yet the existence of a common system belies the claim of dramatic incomparability.

From then on the child played the same games as the adult, either with other children or with adults. . . . Conversely, adults used to play games which today only children play.
