This website has philosophical interest punctuated by cultural interest, the latter typically revolving around the music and food of New Orleans and philosophical literature. If you are looking to categorize me you will find it to be a fool’s enterprise especially in light of my interests reflected by the tag cloud below. I do not and will not kowtow to any party line, either of the tacit intellectual variety or the overtly ideological variety. Thinking should not only be concerned with whether or not intellectual prejudices are validated or challenged: it’s about appreciating the quality of a given writer’s mind. Drawing upon developments in social epistemology, behavioral economics, social neuroscience, philosophy of mind, philosophy of social science, network science and computational intelligence, my longstanding project is committed to knowledge transmission and liberality, guided by a commitment to epistemic modesty and its metaphysical counterpart, cognitive closure.
