In fact no, Kalmar did break up. But it re-formed during the Napoleonic Wars. Denmark-Norway was neutral, and when Sweden's king was deposed for insanity, they cleverly elected the Danish king. The result is called the Scandinavian Realm, and now includes Slesvig (as part of Denmark), Holstein, Oldenburg, and various places in the Caribbean, India, and China. -- John Cowan Consider the matter of Analytic Philosophy. Dennett and Bennett are well-known. Dennett rarely or never cites Bennett, so Bennett rarely or never cites Dennett. There is also one Dummett. By their works shall ye know them. However, just as no trinities have fourth persons (Zeppo Marx notwithstanding), Bummett is hardly known by his works. Indeed, Bummett does not exist. It is part of the function of this and other e-mail messages, therefore, to do what they can to create him.
