Another Thought Experiment

Posted by Tanas Gjorgoski on June 30, 2008

Imagine that I wrote a post about my favorite blogs, titled ‘This is not a Meme!‘. Further imagine that by pure chance, only 3 days after that, somebody else (for example John Valley from The Ivory Tower) links to me as a part of a Meme in which you are supposed to link to your favorite blogs. Is it morally right to present the whole thing as a thought experiment?

(Thanks John!)

A Link To Think

Posted by Tanas Gjorgoski on June 3, 2008

Peter Davis has a several funny cartoon videos on the history of philosophy, called ‘three minute philosophy‘.

Here is one of them…

Also… Don’t forget to check out the new philosophers’ carnival over at Big Ideas.

BTW, you probably noticed there weren’t much posts here lately. I suspect I did something bad to the muses, or to some close relative of their, so don’t expect too much from me in the following period.

Epic Battle, and Potential Rock Band

Posted by Tanas Gjorgoski on May 21, 2008

My apologies to Richard Brown and Richard Chappell but I can’t but have fun in their continuous “heated exchange” over who is misunderstanding whom. After discussing this matter on their own blogs, now they’ve exchanged few shots on Colin’s blog. So, I started thinking how it would be even more fun if they could make this into some kind of epic battle, by doing a quick exchange on random blogs with few witty insults to each other here and there. You know… it would spice up the philosophical blogosphere, and it would be nice refreshing from different topics. Then, as they get more widely known, they could think of two offensive words for epiphenomenalists and physicalists, and do a remake of ‘Don’t call me Whitey, Nigger’ song… Drat, I don’t have enough sense of humor to think of alternative title myself… But you know the song, right?

Oh, and I think I have the name of the band – Epistemic Peers

Physical Domain Closed Earlier Today!

Posted by Tanas Gjorgoski on March 31, 2008

After more than a year, physical domain has been causally closed today. This was decided after C.T. from Chur, Switzerland complained that every weekend he has to buy new dishes, as they regularly turn into tiny flowers for no apparent reason.
