If anyone is reading this blog you know it has been dead for the past year and has had at least one massive design and content change. With a new year I’m aiming to breath new life into this site. It is after all my “digital home”, where I present myself and my work to the public. That will all be here and hopefully something of a new project I am developing might manifest as well.
Sometimes however the blog might take a more “journalistic” tone. I may post comments on “current” happenstance, local national or international news, scientific developments, or peculiar novelties. At times these may appear partisan, especially when addressing “political” happenstance.
I am fascinated with public conceptions of philosophy, and as a professional philosopher I might have something to say about it. I will return to the figure of the philosopher, what I think philosophy is, what it does and what it isn’t fairly regularly.
Finally, as a college instructor I encounter brilliant and creative students daily. Sometimes I may reply to them, or address questions that originate from them. They can be absolutely brilliant, and in a way they are the reason for this site.
I hope you’ll check back regularly, over the next few days I will be implementing and integrating more social networking tools with the site.
The next post will be rather topical. Following the tragedy in Connecticut, I was asked about the relation between the media and violence in our society. I will not be addressing this particular question, but I will address the discourse that has developed politically and socially after the tragedy.
Happy New Year.
