The Education of the Emotions

New book about Post-Truth

I'm hoping that folks might be interested in my new book POST-TRUTH (MIT Press, 2018), where I make a big nod in the direction of writing philosophy for a general audience. It's really troubled me that philosophers haven't taken a more active role these days in pushing back (and educating) the public about "truth" and "facts" now that these topics are in the news on a daily basis. Harry Frankfurt did us proud with ON BULLSHIT, but I feel that we may need a whole new category now with Trump.…

What's in Seneca's Portfolio?

If we can control our emotional responses to the way the markets move, we’ll be more likely to be able to make rational decisions about what to do and when. Stoicism can help.

New philosophy website devoted to "making philosophy matter"

I'd like to let everyone know about a new philosophy website called THE CRITIQUE, run by an energetic graduate student out of British Columbia, which is devoted to featuring philosophical work that can make a difference in public affairs. He did an excellent issue a few months back on police shootings and now has a new one on the vaccine "controversy," featuring four papers by philosophers (including one by me) that are accessible to the general public. He is looking for more readers but…

Are we as a society and as academia doing enough to involve marginalized groups in the dialogue and processes regarding the common good?

Join the lively and…
