A recent book review by me on the meeting of American Philosophy/Pragmatism and the Neurosciences.
Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews is an electronic, peer-reviewed journal that publishes timely reviews of scholarly philosophy books.

Great review.  Do you have any ideas on how neuroscience would be different if it were more pragmatic, beyond the rejection of the assumptions you mentioned?

A hyperlapse of my morning commute. Mountain roads, ftw!

Actually, it ends at my local cafe, which is the "morning office."

For those that might be interested and who will be in the Pittsburgh area in late March, I'm one of the organizers of an event honoring Jim Bogen, PO'57 and Faculty Emeritus of Pitzer College. There should be fun philosophy of science and music.

I recently got my hands on a crittercam (thanks, Paul Faulstich!). Here's a supercut of some of the initial images taken above my cabin in the Angeles National Forest. I still need to work on the settings, but even these initial shots reveal raccoons, foxes and a ring tailed cat (the latter species I had never heard of before, much less seen!)

The mega-list of recommendations.
 
A compilation of about 360 recommendations of "philosophically interesting" SF, by 36 different philosophers.
here! This mega-list of about 360 recommendations is compiled from the lists I've been rolling out over the past several weeks. Thirty-four professional philosophers and two prominent science fiction / speculative fiction (SF) authors with graduate training in philosophy each contributed a list ...

thanks for sharing! there are some excellent works in the list, which make me think the works I don't know will be worth reading.

This video tends to confuse "philosopher" as a role anyone can take in life with "professional philosopher" (those of us with nifty credentials and jobs in philosophy departments). I know folks not in philosophy departments who are "philosophers" and I know people in philosophy departments who aren't all that into wisdom, loving it or otherwise. That said, the light English accent makes it all sound so much more authoritative!

My second gamecam supercut. It's a bit boring this time around; mainly featuring squirrels, foxes, etc., but that looks like a bobcat at the end.

Nice catch on the territory marking, Paul. I had missed that before.

Just a few collected shots of iPhoneography from the past year or so. Not much to see here. Move along.

Ever feel like somebody is standing behind you? Here's a report on a new Current Biology piece exploring the FoP (Feeling of Presence) and showing how you can induce it experimentally using a haptic sensor, a robot and just a bit of delay.  A nice piece of work out of Olaf Blanke's lab in Lausanne. (H/t to my "Perspectives on the Senses" student, Chase Weinholtz for bringing this to my attention.)
Ever feel another human “presence” nearby? It may just mean your brain is confused.

For those in the SoCal area that are interested in the senses, here's a little workshop Pitzer is putting on next week (7 Nov, 1-5 pm) with a sensory anthropologist (Kathryn Geurts), an experimental psychologist (Larry Rosenblum) and a philosopher of perception (Casey O'Callaghan). It should be good fun.
