02.02.2009 Reflexo condicionado. Quanta satisfação me proporcionou o velho Pavlov quando o li pela primeira vez. Demolição definitiva das pretensões humanas. Éramos todos cães e cadelas. Bau-au-au, cheirar o candeeiro, levantar a pata, roer o osso. Adeus tolices acerca do livre arbí­trio, a bondade, a verdade e tudo o mais.
