It's magazines like HITS that have to label things.
Categories Quotes : pic 000677908

Categories Quotes : pic 000790169
There are no categories in contemporary art. There are no rules. Artists are given the freedom to make and create whatever they please and call it whatever they please. I identify with that system, or lack of system, much more than I do the landscape of contemporary publishing.

Categories Quotes : pic 000431491
[In science any model depends on a pre-chosen taxonomy] a set of classifications into which we divide the enormous complexity of the real world ... Land, labor, and capital are extremely heterogeneous aggregates, not much better than earth, air, fire, and water.

I hate to be categorized.

Categories Quotes : pic 000746844

Be able to identify the most common breeds of dogs and cats on sight.
Categories Quotes : pic 001349103

Crude classifications and false generalizations are the curse of the organized life.
Categories Quotes : pic 000879207

Categories Quotes : pic 001655395

Categories Quotes : pic 001338973

Categories Quotes : pic 001638090

Categories Quotes : pic 001272288

Categories Quotes : pic 000298647
Things are grouped together for a reason, but, once they are grouped, their grouping causes them to seem more like each other than they otherwise would. That is, the mere act of classification reinforces stereotypes. If you want to weaken some stereotype, eliminate the classification. Amos's
