AHB announces an OOO/SR workshop in Cyprus. Wish I could attend! The always great Alex Reid has a post up on potentiality. Ditto with Tom Sparrow on all counts (y’all are in for a real treat when his book comes out). Michael has two nice posts up on pragmatism and the wilderness. Graham slams the epistemology police. Somehow these guys always seem to ignore the process of learning and inquiry and then they formulate strawmen suggesting that you reject the need to justify your claims, when it’s the superficial model of justification you’re rejecting. At any rate, there’s always something obscene about this crew as they position everyone as being a defendent at an inquisition and then proceed to commit the fallacy proof by verbosity(and of boring the interlocutor to death!). As articulated by the wiki entry on fallacies:
Proof by verbosity (argumentum verbosium, proof by intimidation): submission of others to an argument too complex and verbose to reasonably deal with in all its intimate details
For those in the area, Notre Dame’s English department is offering a course on SR/OOO/Dark Ecology this Fall.
