The "Surrendered Person" As A Model For Us All
My mother raised me to be a feminist (thanks, mom!) and so when I see a headline like "I Am a Surrendered Wife ," I know there's going to be trouble. When I think "surrendered wife," I think a person who has agreed to sublimate her own will and well-being t...

My Encounter With A Creepy Guy At A Bar, Or, How Is It That Other People Structure Our Experiences?
I was in Connecticut visiting my mother this past weekend, and when I'm visiting my mother I always stay at the same hotel, and when I stay at that hotel I always go at least once for dinner at the nice Italian restaurant that's about thirty feet away from ...

Sometimes I'm Uncomfortable With The Rhetoric Of The Progressive Left
I guess I consider myself a member of the "progressive left." I'm in favor of taxation and regulation, and I think there is too much income inequality. I think most western societies are racist and discriminatory, I think climate change is going to doom us ...

A Few Philosophical Reflections On Dreamland: The True Tale of America's Opiate Epidemic
I just finished reading Sam Quinones's astonishing book Dreamland . Dreamland tells the story of the story of America's recent opiate epidemic, but it is also about a million other things like modern American culture, the ethics of health care, late capital...

The Election And Modern Education Priorities
Like so many people, I am still reeling from the election. As an American living in Canada, my emotions take on a particular complexity: while I feel so lucky to be here, I also feel weird being "away from home" at this moment, if you know what I mean. I do...

Don't Tech People Ever Encounter Dystopian Fiction?
The drones from Iron Man.  Often when I read the news these days, I think to myself: don't these people ever encounter dystopian futuristic books and movies? To me, it seems like modern narratives are full of of very plausible depictions of the very awful a...

Please, Move Money Around -- But Don't Call It "Redistribution."
Ever since I started studying distributive justice, income inequality, and philosophy of economics, one of my biggest pet peeves has been the term "redistribution." I get why conservatives and free-marketers use this terminology, since it supports the ideas...

Cornerstone physiotherapy is wonderful. The office is organized and friendly, and the care I'm getting there is excellent. I recommend it most highly.
