Paul Graham's latest bit, How to Do Philosophy, is interesting.

As with the recent An Alternative Theory of Unions, I cannot shake the sense that Graham is either talking out of his ass on various points, or simply ignoring things because they would undermine the apparent novelty and breadth of his arguments. It's always hard to know what I should do with this feeling when it comes in response to someone with greater domain knowledge, but I am learning not to ignore it.

That said, the essay is well worth a read.
