As a philosophy professor, I sometimes teach some “lite” intro courses, including “Philosophy in Science Fiction” and “Understanding Science”, as well as “heavy” courses (like, e.g., “Phenomenology”) which could use a little more lightness and connection to real life.
This site is an attempt at some ongoing but fleeting comments on such things, hopefully spurred by the real world — e.g., news stories about science, watching sci-fi movies, or just reflectively making observation about everyday embodied experience.
I dunno. Maybe it will provide some input to and stimulation for teaching in these areas. Maybe it will devolve into posting what I had for lunch. And maybe I’ll make three posts and then let it die. We’ll see.
