My post from a couple weeks ago, Goodbye To All That. Again. is featured in the most recent Carnival of Feminists (#3), which is full of pieces much better than mine. I was particularly pleased to see that Melinda (of Sour Duck) had chosen 1970s feminist thought, and its applicability today, as a theme. (See, for example, Elayne Riggs’ memories of c.r., Clancy’s comparison of deoderant ads from 1973 and today, and midlife mama’s remarks on teaching The Second Sex and the memory-hole fate of recent feminist history.) Anyway, as they say, read the whole thing.
Apparently the Rad Geek People’s Daily is one of the candidates this year for Liberty and Power’s award for
Best Libertarian/Classical Liberal Individual Academic Blog. I think that Roderick or Alina or Chris should probably win. But I can promise that if I win I will not put any badges on my sidebar to mark the occasion. And if I lose, I can promise to petulantly blame it all on the lack of Condorcet voting. In any case, as they say, it’s an honor just to be nominated.
In case you are an avid reader of the Southwest Philosophy Review, keep your eyes out for the upcoming winter issue, which will feature a version of my essay on paradoxes of self-reference, Sentences That Can’t Be Said: or, How to Semanticize with a Hammer. If you’re interested in finding out how I dispatch the Liar Paradox, save Marco Polo’s Travels, from philosophical mauling, and develop an irrefutable new proof for the existence of God in the process, drop me a line and I’ll send you a xerox when it arrives.
