A nd maaaaybe, if Mary is anything like her father, she is throwing Jared under the bus for her own actions.  Guano does not fall far from a bat. Mary is Donald's niece and has written a book and goes on every media that will have her to lob scathing criticism at her uncle. Oops!  My bad!   I saw t...

Our local "Mad Prophet" is at it again . . . Death by wireless -- It is not a fake virus; it will be an electromagnetic attack on children in school blamed on a fake virus that only exists on television! Everything you have been told is a lie and a fraud! Get ready for hyperinflation, foo...

I think current professional philosophy is in a crisis of push for publishing . . .
Do you think this 'push' is greater, lesser, or about the same as other disciplines?

I mean no offense, but it seems to me that Mr. Rawls simply refined previous definitions of "liberté, égalité, fraternité".  That he is oft-quoted in the legal system certainly illuminates his insightful wisdom. All philosophers build on the work of others, and expand it to inform contemp...

I've listed many of my favourite contemporaries: John Rawls, Will Kymlicka, Susan Haack, Fiona Woollard, Nancy Kass, Iris Murdoch, Mary Midgley et al.
Why are they your favorites?  Do they all express only one particular perspective, or do they address a broad spectrum of contemporary topics?

I do not entirely trust any politician, especially those with law degrees.

The last 'great' philosopher to impress me was Wittgenstein.  The last, great burst of philosophic development seems to have occurred around his time, and then gradually faded away. Now, I am not a philosopher by any means of measurement, so my impressions of the subject may be way off the mark; bu...

How is it possibly irrelevant to think? When the thought processes are based on false data, fallacious reasoning, or popular opinion. My concern arises mostly from the various debates taking place on this website at this very moment. Granted, the hundred or so active members on this website may not...

The study of Philosophy is a side-interest of mine.  I took formal Philosophy classes back in the late 1970s, and have been intrigued by its methods of reason ever since.  Reading how some of the great philosophers set the foundations of Philosophy makes for enjoyable reading (for me). However . . ...

I also have asthma.  Bicycling and jogging are things I must force myself to do to to keep my lungs in shape, not just my body.  Some days are easier than others. When I am about to address a group, one thing I must do is take two or three 'hits' off my inhaler, or risk that chokey-gaggy feeling of...

One of our newest technicians was forced to admit she did not know how to operated a piece of test equipment that every technician should know how to operate.  I had to give her a 30-minute lecture-demo and assign a supervisor to train her in the more subtler details until she comes up to speed.  I...
