Once upon a time, I was a professional philosopher. But I’m not any more. It’s been a decade since I’ve worked in academia.

But just as retired mechanics still tinker with their cars, I still do philosophy. This site is primarily (and this category is entirely) a vehicle for what is now my hobby–the philosophy of language, metaphysics, and the philosophy of mind.

There are other things on the site too, such as my extended project on walking away from careers that are supposed to inspire passion, occasional political commentary, and anything that I feel a need to post (except for things relating to the subject of my current profession, Java EE and Oracle ADF, which are here).
