A Personal Post

23Jun12

I generally try to keep personal things off here but exceptions are made to be made. My friend Josh, who I’ve known since kindergarten, has a very well written blog here which is equal parts interesting, sad, and funny. For the better part of a decade Josh has been dealing with Schizophrenia and recently has […]


Ravaisson begins to close Of Habit writing: “Between the ultimate depths of nature and the highest point of reflective freedom, there are an infinite number of degrees of measuring the development of one and the same power, and as one rises through them, extension – the condition of knowledge – increases with the distinction and […]

This should be an interesting exchange as it will be a bit like the light versus the dark to varying degrees of seriousness. Also, The Speculative Turn is out. The PDF should […]
