'Of Mice and Men'.

Little Pieces of Los Angeles, Done His Way.

Right turn at Albuquerque.

Tome Raider.

Modes of philosophizing.

Lessing: Nobel win a 'disaster'.

A disappointing Companion.

  1. Some of Jonathan Barnes' comments* in "Modes of philosophizing" have stimulated a discussion of Is Philosophy Relevant? at Talking Philosophy: the Philosophers' Magazine blog.

    *for example:

    "No doubt I’m a crusty old cynic. In any case, I don’t believe that professional philosophy has much to offer non-philosophers on non-philosophical matters. Why should it have?

    "Of course, some philosophers do like to think that aspects of their professional studies have or should have a relevance to Real Life; and some of them do like to address the Common Man. They do it, I hope, for the money – and good luck to them. But far more often than not the results are pretty horrible."
