A Humble Ambition

I want to do for for thought what Joseph Albers did for colour.

Structured and stacked?

Effectively used.

Albers taught his students how to "use color effectively". His aim was "to develop -- through experience -- by trial and error -- an eye for color" (Interaction of Color, p. 1).

My aim, I suppose, would be to teach the effective use of words in the expression thought. To develop the mind's eye (for concepts).
