Mount Monadnock

I was going to do a riff on Mount Monadnock. Of course it is famous in the writings of Emerson and Thoreau, but also as the subject of a thought experiment in the writings of the American philosopher Roderick Chisholm, whom I read, lightly, in graduate school. The great Enlightenment philosopher Leibniz also wrote about monadnock, but that is an entirely different story. In any case, we stopped in Jaffrey and gave some thought to climbing Mount Monadnock, as many other people were doing on a beautiful autumn day. It was enough just to see it, however, as with Everest, and we proceeded on.
