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