Introduction to the Blog

I’ve decided that it’s a good idea to blog about philosophy, what I’m reading, where I’m heading in my thought processes… On this site, I’ll post:

  1. Material that is rough as well as material that is more polished. I am hoping to get feedback on both, if folks feel like commenting. The goal here will be to apply philosophical reasoning to important social, political, and/or ethical topics – to show the relevance and helpfulness of philosophy applied to real life.
  2. What I’m calling ‘memos’ about teaching philosophy to undergraduates and (new mission) on educational methods more generally. I will say a bit about what I have found to work well, what doesn’t work well, and what I’m thinking about trying in the classroom. I teach 2-3 courses per term and have done so for the last several years (I’ve taught around 70 credit-hours in sum). I’m always looking for suggestions about the things that I post in this category as well.
  3. Once in awhile, I’ll also post photos that I’ve taken on my travels.

Cheers,

Steve
