A bit of a stinging (and somewhat peeved) rebuke to Strawson (Swanson and particularly Nicod expressed the ideas before) but it also falls into the trap of taking Strawson's (1971/1959) thought experiment too literally, as an explanation of sound as lacking spatiality.

Useful for giving some insight into Nicod's (1970/1930) ideas from the 1920s.
