I love humanities and philosophy in particular. I'm also a layman in both counts. Nevertheless, sometimes I wanna post some personal/informal essays on these subjects, but I have no idea if my fellow Tilderinos have any interest in those at all.
So here are as some subjects I have in mind, please tell if you're interested in of those or anything relatead:
- The Philosohy of Love
- Possibile World Semantics
- Philosophical zombies
- Albert Camus
- The Kyoto School
- The Paradox of Fiction
- The Paradox of Suspense
- Aristotle's Rhetoric
- Informal Logic
- John Austin
- Speech Acts
The idea is not to make anything resemble a professional take of these subjects, but rather informal commentaries that might serve as starting points for interesting discussions.
Sadly, I don' have the knowledge or disposition to comment on subjects that are typically popular on Tildes, such as those more directedly related to computer science and artificial intelligence.
In terms of reference, I won't go much beyond the refereed links, which are reasonably exhaustive for the purposes of this project. The periodicity will be once every two months (counting starts tomorrow), with the first post that comes in next Septemper 16, 2020 (Monday). 60 days from now. Because of that, it wil be probably long form (no quarantees!).
This would come in addition to my project of going through each informal fallacies in the Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments, but I don't have any concrete plans for that now.
In any case, these things take time and effort, and I'll only then if and only if you guys and girls demonstrate interest. So please be vocal!
I'll choose the next subject of discussion base on public interest.
