  This idea has a remarkably familiar ring from two different dirrections.
More year ago than I care to admit we had a question about a tree falling
in a wilderness without a human witness. Therefore, did it make a noise as
it fell? At the second level the idea of taxonomy being language based and
arbritrary is often discussed in the language section of most cultural
anthropology texts. At a higher level there is a fine article by Count and
Bowles entitled "Fact and Theory in Anthropology" which would fit this
question nicely. If you want the full citation I can get it for you later
in the week.
