Links for Thinking

* History Carnival LXII at "Spinning Clio"

* C. George Caffentzis, Algebraic Money: Berkeley's Philosophy of Mathematics and Money (PDF)
Karin DeBoer, Hegel Today: Towards a Tragic Conception of Intercultural Conflicts (PDF - ht)

* Gadamer, Brunellus, and the Brownshirts at "Speculum Stultorum"

* The Kids Philosophy Slam:

The Kids Philosophy Slam is an annual program designed to make philosophy fun and accessible to all kids in grades K—12, as well as to help promote critical thinking skills and encourage dialogue with other students and adults. The Philosophy Slam asks kids to answer a philosophical question such as "What is the meaning of life?" Depending on their age, kids can express themselves in words, artwork, poetry or song. Each grade level has its own national winner, and the top four high school students debate the question at the national finals. The winner earns the title of "The Most Philosophical Student in America" Schools from across the country compete for the title of "The Most Philosophical School in America."

It's not quite the same as the oracle at Delphi telling Chaerephon that there was no one wiser than Socrates in Greece, though.

* David Corfield on Peirce on mathematics at "n-Category Cafe".

* Keith has a post on why Hume used the dialogue form for his Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion at "Summa Philosophiae".

* James Poulos at "The Postmodern Conservative" recently had a couple of posts on MacIntyre: Neuhaus v. Nussbaum, MacIntyre vs. Rorty

* "The Reactionary Epicurean" suggests a way of understanding the Stages of Mathematical Development. (ht)

* At The Logic Museum, Simon of Faversham discusses whether Caesar is dead. Yes, he knows that he is; it's the logical issues of it that are his concern; in particular, he is interested in elucidating the fallacy of secundum quid et simpliciter. For broadly similar reasons, Radulphus Brito discusses whether Socrates is dead. (ht)

* Paul Robinson is puzzling over the question of how Dooyeweerd's aspects causally relate.
