During the last thirty years of his life, Albert Einstein sought relentlessly for a socalled unified field theory—a theory capable of describing nature's forces within a single, allencompassing, coherent framework. Einstein was not motivated by the things we often associate with scientific undertakings, such as trying to explain this or that piece of experimental data. Instead, he was driven by a passionate belief that the deepest understanding of the universe would reveal its truest wonder: the simplicity and power of the principles on which it is based.

Characteristic of the human is that his desire is never ended, except on short time. When one desire is satisfied, another one comes into the foreground. And it is true for the whole life of man. Thus, it is very important to study and understand the nature and relationship of all motivations by the broad standing of human needs. Adair, J. 2006.

This paper introduces primitive Optimality Theory (OTP), a linguistically motivated formalization of OT. OTP specifies the class of autosegmental representations, the universal generator Gen, and the two simple families of permissible constraints. In contrast to less restricted theories using Generalized Alignment, OTP's optimal surface forms can be generated with finitestate methods adapted from (Ellison, 1994). Unfortunately these methods take time exponential on the size of the grammar. Indeed the generation problem is shown NPcomplete in this sense. ...

This book grew out of courses which I taught at Cornell University and the University of Warwick during 1969 and 1970. I wrote it because of a strong belief that there should be readily available a semihistorical and geometrically motivated exposition of J. H. C. Whitehead's beautiful theory of simplehomotopy types; that the best way to understand this theory is to know how and why it was built.

We wrote this book to share with other ecologists what we have learned about the structure and use of theory and its relationship to the myriad activities that constitute modern science. Our own quest was motivated by the sometimes unclear way in which the term “theory” is used in both scientifi c publications and informal discussions. We needed to fi nd out what theory was and how it was built. We also wanted to evaluate the varied and often contradictory claims made about what constitutes proper scientifi c practice.

Considering the speed in which humans resolve syntactic ambiguity, and the overwhelming evidence that syntactic ambiguity is resolved through selection of the analysis whose interpretation is the most 'sensible', one comes to the conclusion that interpretation, hence parsing take place incrementally, just about every word. Considerations of parsimony in the theory of the syntactic processor lead one to explore the simplest of parsers: one which represents only analyses as defined by the grammar and no other information.
