I'm Back!

Ok. It looks like I'm finally back in action here. It also looks like, just as I predicted, the Internet got along just fine without me.

A lot has happened in my life in the month or so that I have been away from blogging. The three biggest news items are, in chronological order:

  1. I got married

  2. The online version of "The Semantics of Sense Perception" was published

  3. I moved to Los Angeles

Now that the major life changes have more or less settled down (we've been married for three weeks and in our new apartment in LA for one week) I expect to return to somewhat regular blogging. Of course, I've never been more than "somewhat" regular and things have only "more or less" settled down - I still have a lot to do! - so we'll see what actually happens.

In terms of topics I expect to be thinking about in the near future (besides the election), I am hoping to put together a paper this week, based on an old term paper, for submission to the Society of Christian Philosophers Pacific Division Conference. The paper will attempt to resolve the apparent tension between Berkeley's metaphysics, which doesn't take "body" very seriously, and his theological commitment as an orthodox Christian to the concept of a bodily resurrection. Classes start in about one month and topics I expect to be studying include epistemology, material constitution, and Spinoza.

Stay tuned!

I think you're going to enjoy the Irvine department a lot. I'm not sure there's a better place for the history of philosophy at this place, even if they did have to take two faculty members (both of whom I really liked) and two top-notch graduate students from Syracuse (one now teaches at Harvard) in the process of their rise to the top.
