Writing a textbook is a process that forces upon the author a neutral stance since it is clear that the student is best served by impartial analysis. Yet textbook authors can feel as compelled to push their own intellectual agenda as authors of research papers, and for this final chapter I will drop the impersonal we together with its implied neutrality and present a view of the overall situation in mathematical linguistics that makes no claims to being the standard view or even the view of a well-definable minority.
