Coming soon...

Next month, there is a new book from William Weiss, who collaborated with Gareth Jackson on Escape Trajectories.

The new book--68 Cantos--is a carefully edited "cut-up" that William Weiss made with two of Michael Butterworth's science fiction novels, published some decades ago. The resulting production reads like a novel--a very strange novel. It is more properly characterized as a prose poem. It is very well done, and it should be available the first week of August.

Questions in Ethics

1. The film A Clockwork Orange presents us with difficult questions concerning freedom of choice, the politics of social control, the nature of justice, and the nature of good and evil. Describe how the film presents these themes, and resolve your understanding by reflecting upon them in a clear and organized fashion. As the film shows, these issues are shot through with paradox, contradiction and irony. Can we hope to come to some sort of conclusion about them?

2. Technocracy and moral philosophy: consider the relationship between normative ethics (or prescriptive moral philosophy) and technocracy.  With this relationship in mind, explain how analytic philosophy (or meta-ethics) critiques moral philosophy.
