  8. "Schelling and 'Philosophical Psychology'" summer course

    Nah it's a paid course. I'd love to hear th lectures but quite frankly don't have the money for it. I'll wait for the book!

    Holy crap! I was absolutely sure of "enormity"....I feel insecure now. Hug?
  10. Man Introduces Wife to Gorillas

    Yeah...it always makes me remember this picture I saw around the time Hurricane Katrina hit the USA - a frog sitting on top of a snake swimming frantically across a body of water. It was really powerful: "hey snake! (*#$# our differences - LET'S GET THE )*$#$ OUTTA HERE!"
  11. Words you thought you knew....

    The enormity of my misuse of "enormity" has an enormousness which is simply staggering.
  12. Man Introduces Wife to Gorillas

    This is one of the best videos i've ever seen! i don't think anyone should underestimate the bonds that can be formed between humans and other animals...i've seen clips of lions and tigers playing with the humans who helped raise them after years of not seeing them. an amazing reminder that we are part of the natural world and can learn a lot from our animal friends.
  13. Hosted Space: "Schelling and 'Philosophical Psychology'"

  14. Man Introduces Wife to Gorillas

    Wow.,....can't believe I missed this! Wait a minute...yeah, I can. At any rate, this is an amazing video...makes me wonder when "gorilla" is going to disappear from the Junior OED...
  15. Words you thought you knew....

    I came upon this great slideshow at dictionary.com and just had to post it here.

  18. The difficulty is the point (teaching lit)

    I've had a couple of teachers who got a bit chuffed at the idea of education beign referred to as a knowledge industry, but you can't ignore the facts especially at the uni level
  19. I am still finding this hard to believe, but here it is: https://www.change.org/p/oxford-university-press-nature-related-words-should-be-reinstated-in-the-junior-oxford-english-dictionary

    Very cool mate! Can you post any of it here (at risk of sounding like a cheapskate )?
  21. happy Kwanza-festimas!

    Happy festimas to everyone as well. I'd be somewhat more cheerful, but the past couple of weeks have been occupied with less than festive things - among them our beloved cat, who is about to pass away.
  22. happy Kwanza-festimas!

  23. The difficulty is the point (teaching lit)

  24. couldn't resist posting this...

    Pretty much says it all in this day and age! http://wheninacademia.tumblr.com/post/129518725904/when-there-is-only-one-job-available-in-your
  25. I wonder if there's anything like the "Fake News Fallacy" by now, given the age of Trump? Or maybe the "fundamentalist crackpot" fallacy?
