Oh joy... The latest contribution to the NYT's failing and mismanaged enterprise The Stone is a compelling and thoughtful piece by Graham Priest about the Liar Paradox and dialetheism.
There's nothing in it that will come as news to anyone who follows this stuff, even from a great distance. But the idiotic comments from know-nothing-know-it-alls and other morons have already proved highly entertaining. Another triumph of public philosophy!
To repeat: Philosophy is hard. The public likes only what is easy and hates what is hard. Public philosophy is silly.
Professor Leiter recently ran a poll about The Stone. A great majority favored continuing the endeavor with new and less incompetent editorial management. Though I agree with the assessment of the current editorial side of the operation, I think the whole thing should be abolished immediately.
P.S. Isn't it time for a call for abstracts for Glee and Philosophy?????
