Writings of 2021

Every New Year's Day, I post a retrospect of the past year's writings. Here are the retrospects of 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.

The biggest project was my new book The Weirdness of the World (under contract with Princeton University Press). Although most of the chapters are based on previously published essays, much of my writing energy for the year was expended in updating and revising those essays, integrating them into a book, and writing new material for the book. The biggest negative impact was on my fiction and public philosophy. In 2022, I hope to be able to write more in both genres.
