Due to a recommendation from a follower, I’ve decided to commence a series of posts that explain a little more thoroughly some aspects of philosophy. Think of these as your personal—and very general—philosophy lessons. I will consult my own knowledge from previous philosophy classes and discussions, the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, my own, personal philosopher, and, when all else fails, Wikipedia.
Because I, myself, would probably get too bored with a series of philosophy lessons if they were to be posted every day, I will intersperse them weekly with other posts.
Philosophers, you will love these because you can comment after the post with all sorts of points that I leave out or misrepresent. Then, you can complain to your non-philosophers about my post and explain to them what exactly I should have said, which will open up all sorts of healthy, philosophy-communication.
Non-philosophers, I will make these as unintimidating and interesting as possible. Perhaps there will even be illustrations. This post is not a philosophy lesson, though; as I need to do some research tonight first.
Please feel most free to message me with suggestions, either for topics that you would like to know more about or topics that you think that non-philosophers need to know more about (by email or on this post; my email address is on the left sidebar).
As far as real posts go, I was too busy with real work during lunch to come up with something, so I'll make sure tomorrow's post is extra cool.
I will probably start with some topics in Metaphysics tomorrow, because I really need to get over my first traumatic experience with Kant (Fall of `07). Perhaps a study of metaphysics will help me get over that.
Here's a picture, to apologize. For those of you who have lived in Texas, you know that the bluebonnet picture is a must for every Texan family.
