The late twentieth-century German philosopher Odo Marquard once wrote, “the philosopher is not the expert, but the stuntman of the expert.” In this philosophy blog, I take those intellectual risks that only an inexpert intellectual stuntman can. I encourage my readers and commentators to do the same. In short: This is a space for trying out ideas. Feel free.
