De mayor quiero ser filósofa

The ConversationHace mucho que en Europa las máquinas reemplazaron a los animales que trabajan. Con la repentina entrada del automóvil, por ejemplo, los caballos desaparecieron de las carreteras. “Perdieron” los caballos y ganó el motor de combustión. Y perder implica que, en unos pocos años, desde 1915 a 1960, la población equina se contrajo de 22 a 3 millones. More...

My Philosophy and My Context

My Philosophy and My Context
John Spencer, edrethink, January 18, 2013

John Spencer writes about his philosophy of education. He writes, "As a teacher, I become a guide to help them become the connective, critical, creative problem-solvers that a democratic society needs in order to flourish." It makes me think about what my own philosophy of education might be - an especially pertinent question, given that I'm a real philosopher and all. More...

United we stood. We were going to move mountains (Advocate 25 03)

It is a great pleasure for me, Grahame, to speak here tonight at your retirement dinner. I myself have been the subject of such a dinner a couple of months ago, when I retired as EI GS, so I think I understand what you are going through. And, in the words of the German philosopher Arthur Schopenhaur: “The worst is yet to come”. The withdrawal symptoms I mean. More...

La filosofía no es útil ni inútil: es inevitable

The ConversationCon las nuevas decisiones del Gobierno y planteamientos educativos, la filosofía está, una vez más, en el candelero. ¿Es útil? ¿Sirve para algo? ¿Tiene sentido cultivarla en el siglo XXI? ¿Merece la pena estudiarla y enseñarla. Más...

Philosophy Only A Philosopher Could Love?

Philosophy Only A Philosopher Could Love?
Jonathan Livengood, Metafilter, January 2, 2012.

Jonathan Livengood calls this "philosophy only a philosopher could love," and while I don't actually stand as a counterexample, I think there might be wider love for Clark Glymour's manifesto than the author suggests. His point of view, in a nutshell, is that for all the criticisms logical positivists receive, they contributed much of value to society, including not only computational logic and artificial intelligence, but a better and more moral view of the world than, say, Heidegger, Sartre and Merleau-Ponty. I have said many times that "my morality is based on my science; my science isn't based on my morality." Though Hume famously said you cannot derive an "ought" from an "is" I take it as foundational to ethics that you can't simply argue your way out of what is a transparently flawed morality. More...
