This lecture gives a proposed framework within which to think about making up people as well as the looping effect. It elaborates on the kinds of people that will not be discussed, such as those belonging to different classifications called ‘ethnic’. The focus of this lecture is in the ways the social, medical and biological sciences create new classifications and new knowledge. The engines of discovery and autism are two of the topics covered by the lecture.

Keywords:   proposed framework, making up people, looping effect, engines of discovery, autism
