My Office in Main Hall


Philosophy of Language Links.   A fairly substantial list of online papers in the philosophy of language.

A Berkelean Conversation.   A brief conversation that occurred a few years ago and which illustrates one of Berkeley's responses to an important criticism of his view.

Postmodernist Kuhnian Tribute.   A friendly jab at a view that is all too often accepted uncritically.
