GUEST POST from Tru: Several critiques of Edward Feser and Aristotelian philosophy

Hey guys! Here’s something a little different tonight. A new commenter by the name of tru recently happened upon my posts on Aquinas (specifically, my critiques of Edward Feser’s “The Last Superstition” and “Aquinas: A Beginner’s Guide”) and left some really thoughtful comments!

Chatroom Justice, Part II

As I promised last week, friends, here’s a follow-up post to my previous one. This time, I’ll be discussing some more life lessons taken from the chatroom I was ejected from.   1: Know when to back off from a conversation. Some time ago, I got into an argument with someone when he called the […]

Wisdom on moving to a new place

No writing done at all this week, my friends–getting set up at grad school was more chaotic than I expected! I managed to get a new room that’s MUCH better than my old one, but as a result, I have to move all my stuff over there, pay some room changing bills, change up my […]

Ralph Ellison quotes

All quotes in this entry come from here: Ellison, Ralph. Shadow and Act.

Our strength is that […]

Quotes from James Baldwin

No quickshot review today, my friends. I’ve gotten to be really, really busy and I haven’t the time even for those sorts of entries. I do have just enough time, however, to share a few good quotes from the book I’m reading this week: James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time. The proper citation for the […]
