    I think that Philosophy of mind gets a bad rap because people know just enough about it that they know a lot of things that aren't really on the table any more.

    I mean, I took a grad class in philosophy of mind last year and I still haven't caught up to where the literature is in the present day. I'm caught up to the late 90s, but not to the last ten years. With the exception of Jaegwon Kim's supervenience argument against higher level properties.

    EDIT: But Kim's probably wrong, so that's not terribly helpful, though it was interesting.

    one of my classmates that went through the gifted programme, as it was run in singapore, remarked after we left that it was in essence a classroom full of nerds being kept carefully unaware that they are nerds

    Its pretty tough to hide that in the US. We do have places like Bronx Science or Thomas Jefferson in NoVa that are bonkers advanced in terms of facilities. Maybe you could pull it off there.

    those are waaaaay more dedicated than ours was, i think it goes too far in the direction of specialization. i think the feeling that being able to compete in some way with classmates who can authentically claim to represent their country at whatever fades once you reach that level of isolation. gifted ed, as a program for merely rather intelligent non-prodigies, probably benefits from having the writers and the scientists together in the same classroom

    hilary putnam can be pretty cool i guess

    and i guess i enjoyed donald davidson's stuff

    Searle is good too. He's wrong about nearly everything, but he's good.

    He is probably one of the greatest assets to philosophy of mind and language in the 20th century just because he has been wrong. He keeps being inventively wrong, and forcing people to improve their thinking.

    Parents always worry about the funniest shit. Like, I think my dad finally realized he could relax this past weekend when I was visiting home. He walked into the living room and heard me on speakerphone with a customer service rep at Expedia, parlaying a mandatory schedule change for a connecting flight into a complete ticket rescheduling without paying the $200 fee. He just stood there watching, not saying a word until I hung up the phone. I could tell he was trying so hard not to blurt out advice before I tried each bureaucracy navigation maneuver.

    It was totally mundane and I've clearly dealt with way more pressing shit, but I guess as a parent you never quite shake the feeling that you gotta guide your kid though every little thing until you see for yourself that they are on top of it.

    He didn't even ask me if I filed my taxes yet! (I didn't.)

    George R.R. Martin admits that he is concerned about D.B. Weiss' plans to wrap GoT up by Season 8.
    I’m hopeful that I can not let them catch up with me. The season that’s about to debut covers the second half of the third book. The third book [A Storm of Swords] was so long that it had to be split into two. But there are two more books beyond that, and A Dance With Dragons. A Dance With Dragons is itself a book that’s as big as A Storm of Swords. So there’s potentially three more seasons there, between Feast and Dance, if they split into two the way the did [with Swords]. Now, Feast and Dance take place simultaneously. So you can’t do Feast and then Dance the way I did. You can combine them and do it chronologically. And it’s my hope that they’ll do it that way and then, long before they catch up with me, I’ll have published The Winds of Winter, which’ll give me another couple years. It might be tight on the last book, A Dream of Spring, as they juggernaut forward.

    Spartacus went back and told a prequel season. That’s also an option. We have prequel. We have the Dunk and Egg novellas, which take place a hundred years before. And I’ve just published The Princess and the Queen, which takes place two hundred years before. So there’s lots of Westeros material out there, if we want to keep doing Westeros projects, but not necessarily that. But, you know, I realize—I don’t want to sound too glib about this. This is a serious concern.

    Philosophy in general kind of annoys me because it seems like not only is it this absurdly huge field, you're not allowed to know any of it until you've studied all the history.

    The impression I get is like,
    Yeah we're discussing current philosophy ideas. You can't touch 'em yet though, first you have to read all these other books. Also those books are dumb and wrong.

    I dunno man, there's plenty of science stuff written for laymen, but I've never seen any current philosophy for laymen.

    life's a game that you're bound to lose / like using a hammer to pound in screws
    fuck up once and you break your thumb / if you're happy at all then you're god damn dumb

    I'll be interested to see what they do, whether they let the series just fade out or if they change things to conclude it a sensible number of seasons.

    Or if they just sack off the books and write about Small-y and Dwarf-y who become private investigators for some reason.

    No chance HBO would do a prequel season or anything like that for Game of Thrones. Too many actors to keep under contract and too many child actors that are already looking a bit big for their roles (Bran is gonna be carrying Hodor around in another season or two).

    I do hope George can get the books out before the material hits the air, but I also hope he doesn't rush it and sacrifice quality just to meet a deadline.
