Several years ago, I had intended that main part of this blog should be an extended exploration of the relation between philosophy, science, reason, and Faith. Its goal was to explore the relation between these in a somewhat orderly way, starting with science and philosophy — not quite as if it were a book, but still with some such order in mind. After a while, though, I realized that the project was too ambitious, and would require too much precision and care for a blog which is inevitably a bit informal. So I stopped writing, but have left it as it was when I stopped. Some day what I intended may appear as a book. In the meantime, I will continue to post occasionally as time permits, but without continuing to aim at a detailed examination of one subject. The idea of a “weblog” fits with what I think I can really do here — so future posts are likely to be more informal, schematic, and possibly aphoristic. Perhaps a few readers may find that more thought provoking that it often is to plod through a completely elaborated book or essay.
On the side are a few lectures and articles, as well as reflections on random topics which I may or may not get to write on more at length some day. (Unfortunately, WordPress requires me to make these “pages” rather than “posts,” and so I can’t give them tags or categories. I’d be happy to find a way around that, if anybody knows of one.)
Thoughtful, friendly comments are welcome! I will try to respond to comments as time allows.
