January 14, 2012

Reminded by a point I raised in my last post, I realised that I have apparently failed to mention an article of mine that is forthcoming in a University of Chicago volume edited by Massimo Pigliucci and Maarten Boudry – The Philosophy of Pseudoscience.

The book’s introduction – a draft

November 22, 2007

I am currently writing the introduction to my book. I expect that it will change several times before I finish – counterintuitively, the introduction is usually the last part of a text that I finalise – but, at this point, I am thinking of starting with an example of spontaneous superstition that I mentioned on […]
