This partly answers my question of a few minutes ago. But I would like to see how you do it!

But, for me, they (syntax and semantics) are not apart in reality!  This might be a fruitless attempt, but it does not hurt to try!

> </div>Yes to follow descartes is problematic...(just because you can think something apart does not mean it is apart in reality)...descartes' error, he assumed his ability to think has ontological status...But kant ' s introduction of the synthetic a prior fixes descartes, refutes Hume ' s skepticism,  and reinvents locke.  I read Chomsky as searching, empirically, for the embodied forms of understanding and sensibilities by which we experience being in the world. He stops there.  Vygotsky completes chomsky...my reading...i maybe wrong.
