This blog is about wisdom, morality, cognitive science, religion, and how discursive reason is impotent to secure for us ultimate well-being and meaning in life. It’s also a blog about what I’m reading, and what I think about what I’m reading. The style of writing slides between broadly conversational on the one hand, and narrowly technical on the other. NB: the entries on this blog vary widely in quality because, well, it’s a blog.
