autumn 2018


See the site home page, left column, for the current update.

I’ve given lots of time, the past couple of months, to commenting at news articles, especially New York Times articles and the Washington Post (and other sites, too). I keep a copy of each comment, because I carefully write my comments before posting them.

That has resulted in a large archive of comments (over 50K words, so far) that I’ll love to organize into topic areas someday (or weave into upcoming topics).

The fun continues, exemplified by today’s constitutional law posting.

capsulating a tropography



News that Google+ is closing down caused me to post the following there (modified now for here):



If you have conceptual interest in individuation, creativity, phenomenality, tropology, literary humanism, conceptuality as such, metaphilosophy, post-logocentric philology, standard topics in theoretical humanities (e.g., value theory, philosophy of mind, cultural psychology, theory of “Truth” [in standard philosophical senses]), pragmatism, bioscience, anthropology, metascience, public policy, historiology, Heidegger, philosophy of education and health care, philosophy of law, Jürgen Habermas, evolutionary theory, political progressivity, community development, good government, planet management (sustainability), S.E.T.I., and enough writerly eccentricity that I risk losing credibility, re: views on all of the above areas, then do stay in touch.



After all, the ultimate meaning of life is to 
have fun.
