YAD (yet another delay)

So, I have been lax in posting lately. I ate’nt dead. I have been checking the proofs for my book, revising a chapter in a book, and revising a paper on species (or the lack of them as a theoretical category). Also, I’ve been running the AAHPSSS website and helping with the conference. Which is Read More…

I have updated my blogroll

It was very sad to see how many of my favourite blogs and sites no longer exist, but I checked them all. If you have any blogs I should add to this list, let me know.

We’re back!

Thanks to the generosity of three donors – Neil, James and Ben – I have enough to pay the rent on this place. Now I have to do some writing. Problem is I’m time poor, so I thought I’d write up some of my lecture notes as posts. Expect some stuff on the idea of Read More…

Evolving Thoughts may close soon

I know I have been remiss in not updating ET for a while. I am working in a very hard boring (lowly paid) job and my mind is not roaming as far as it used to right now. However, the fees for the domain and hosting are due, and I cannot make them, so it Read More…

And now for something not entirely different

My first ink: Magritte Python!

Update

As readers may have noticed, I have been pretty inactive here lately. This is because I have been finishing a book and sending it off to the publishers, which was achieved about 8 hours ago. The book is titled The Nature of Classification, and it will come out from Palgrave Macmillan. I coauthored this with Malte Read More…

Does anyone want to pay me for this blog?

I will have received a lot of requests to revive the blog, which is very gratifying, but to be venal about it puts no money in my pocket. So if anyone wants a philosophy of science, especially biology and the social aspects of science, blog for their stable, the way Scienceblogs used to operate, so Read More…

I’m suspending Evolving Thoughts

The readership has dropped, and I don’t get any feedback to speak of, so I am going to suspend ET for now. I will leave it up until the domain name expires, or until I get inspired and the time and funding to resume. Thanks for reading, those of you who still do. Best to you all

Coming to Berkeley

I’ll be in Berkeley (California, in case there’s another one somewhere) from around the 9th to the 15th of March, to give a talk to the Mellon-Sawyer series Speciesism and the Future of Humanity. Anyone who wants an unemployed philosopher to give a talk to their group also, or just buy him a meal, should Read More…

Ronin Institute for masterless scholars

As readers may know, I, along with a great many other researchers, have no permanent position, making do with casual work to get by. This is an increasing problem around the world as educational institutions transition from being a public good to a service provider to government and economic goals. Jon Wilkins (no close relation), Read More…
