Writings of 2022

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, 20192020, and 2021.

The biggest project this year was my new book The Weirdness of the World, submitted in November and due in print in early fall 2023.  This book pulls together ideas I've been publishing over the past ten years concerning the failure of common sense, philosophy, and empirical science to explain consciousness and the fundamental structure of the cosmos, and the corresponding bizarreness and dubiety of all general theories about such matters.




Under contract / in progress:

    As co-editor with Jonathan Jong, The Nature of Belief, Oxford University Press.
    As co-editor with Helen De Cruz and Rich Horton, a yet-to-be-titled anthology with MIT Press containing great classics of philosophical SF.

Full-length non-fiction essays

Appearing in print:

Finished and forthcoming:
    "How far can we get in creating a digital replica of a philosopher?" (third author, with Anna Strasser and Matt Crosby”, Robophilosophy Proceedings 2022.
    "What is unique about kindness? Exploring the proximal experience of prosocial acts relative to other positive behaviors” (with Annie Regan, Seth Margolis, Daniel J. Ozer, and Sonja Lyubomirsky), Affective Science
In draft and circulating:
    "The full rights dilemma for A.I. systems of debatable personhood" [available on request].
    "Inflate and explode". (I'm trying to decide whether to trunk this one or continue revising it.)

Happy New year and thanks for the last 10 years of philosophical education everyone...

I think you could have given more... "fundamental structure of the cosmos" in the last 10 years...

I mean, including why-where-what... 'man-kinds-place' in this cosmological structure...

Its that we find ourselves inside...
