Philosophical Papers

Below are links to various Philosophical Papers I have written over my lifetime on various Philosophical Topics which include:  Social Philosophy, Ethics, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Philosophy, Philosophy of Religion, Philosophy of Human Nature (Philosophical Anthropology), Meta-Science, Philosophy of Science, Theory of Truth, Epistemology, Philosophy of Mathematics, Philosophy of Language.  Philosophy to many is reading Plato or bullshitting on the street.  It is neither of these.  Modern Philosophy is concerned with modern topics such as the relation between the mind and the brain, the structure of the mind, is the mind a computer?, is the universe a computer?, what is the relation between language and thought?, what is the structure of knowledge, etc. as well as more traditional concerns like what is truth and what can we know?  Read Exam Questions from the Philosophy of Mind below to get a sense of what contemporary Philosophers are concerned with.  In my experience Philosophy is the easiest thing to do poorly and the hardest thing to do correctly.
