The essays in these pages were written by me as coursework for evening classes at the Centre for Continuing Education at the University of Edinburgh. All the courses came under the category 'Philosophy and Religion' and the essays reflect this, you may also detect a slight leaning towards computer science and AI and the philosophy thereof.
- 1. Rationilism and Empiricism
- 2. Free Will
- 3. Dostoevsky and Kafka : Existentialists?
- 4. Bakhtin and the World Wide Web
- 5. Wittgenstein : Language Games
- Some incomplete notes in response to Searle's Chinese Room argument
The essays are of varying quality and are mostly targeted at the level of a first year undergrad with some philosophical background, rather than the general reader. Having said that, I expect most people would get the gist.
Hopefully I'll get a guestbook sorted out at some point so you can leave your comments, in the meantime feel free to email me at [email protected]
