My Mind Is Not My Brain

Guest Post by Abigail L. Rosenthal      

How much hangs on that denial – or on its contradictory, that my mind is my brain!

If our minds are our brains, as I once thought, and as our educated contemporaries mostly still assert, it follows that one day we will all entirely cease to be. And, unless we’ve managed to become unusually famous, whoever survives to remember us will, sooner or later, also cease to be.

Monday (in)Sanity – The Left, the Right and the Strawman

Often guilty of being in an echo chamber online Facebooks insistence of trying to turn me into a progressive has uncovered something for me. Whilst modern culture ensures that I know exactly where the left stands on every single issue without discussion, what was shocking to me was how little the left understands or more accurately knows the position on the right.

Learning the Lessons From History

When a society does not learn from the events of history, it will be faced with the same outcomes. There is much that has happened in the world that offers important lessons. If we are prepared to examine closely the records of times gone by, we will understand why totalitarian regimes established themselves in some countries, at different periods in time.

Hope Springs Eternal…With Some Effort

Guest Post by Julie Ponesse   

In the fall of 2021, after 20 years spent teaching philosophy at universities in Canada and the U.S, I was terminated “with cause” for challenging my university’s COVID policy.  Since then, I have been interviewed a number of times about my experience.
