Let’s See What’s in the News Today (March 8, 2015)


  • Galen Strawson has a great article about the history of the philosophy of consciousness.




Free Will

  • A great comic analyzing the linguistics between compatibilism and determinism.








  • An interesting article about how divorces don’t mean the end of a relationship, how marriages don’t end by one person’s death, and new forms of what relationships can be.  From the article itself: “So on your checklist of what you seek in a future spouse, alongside a sense of humour and desire for kids, include this: someone from whom you can envision being amicably divorced.”
  • Interesting article from Dr. Helen Fisher: “Casual Sex may be Improving America’s Marriages.”  She used to be against anti-casual sex, but the article is looking at how casual sex may actually to contribute to lasting marriages.


An updated SEP on “The Problem of Evil.”




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.
