Thought

My more philosophical articles. I’m not pretentious enough to call myself a philosopher (unless I follow it up with fool as on my About page), but I have been known to ponder some of the big questions. Here there are articles on subjects like free will, consciousness, the purpose of art, and what’s wrong with Postmodernism…

Topics are arranged alphabetically with the most relevant articles toward the top of each section. Some entries fit in more than one category.
