Decision Theory



  • French economist Thomas Piketty was offered the top award in France.  He turned it down saying that “it is not the government’s role to decide who is honorable.”




  • Recovering from a breakup is hard.  According to the latest science, the best way to recover is to reflect on the relationship, talk to someone about it, and writing about it.  It seems to distracting yourself away from the former relationship isn’t the best coping mechanism.


About shaunmiller

I have just completed a visiting position as an assistant professor at Dalhousie University. My ideas are not associated with my employer; they are expressions of my own thoughts and ideas. Some of them are just musings while others could be serious discussions that could turn into a bigger project. Besides philosophy, I enjoy martial arts (Kuk Sool Won), playing my violin, enjoying coffee around town, and experimenting with new food.
