Collections of papers and articles that I’ve spotted this week that seem interesting. Comments on some of them.





  • What is so bad about Scientism
  • Thrasyllus' Syndrome
    • That thing that happens when you spend time thinking and talking about what others do, not doing things yourself.
    • Friends don't let Friends Thrasylling
  • David Chalmers did an AMA
  • To understand Trump, learn from his voters
    • Trumpians are often classed in the populist quadrant of the two-axis political compass.
    • They are also called communitarians, so it shouldn't surprise you that Sandel could be read as an intellectual of Trumpism.
    • Make no mistake: I think Sandel is a nice - but deeply mistaken -and I learned a lot with his course on Justice.
