Disciplinary distinctions

If you like that sort of thing (and if you don't) I've posted something about empirical versus non-empirical subjects over at philpercs.

I've posted something at philpercs

I think I should start posting alerts like this every time I post something over at philpercs, since people still come here who might not go there. My latest post there is a rant against "the humanities" and "the liberal arts".

You can find this and my other contributions there here.

And of course my online version of the Tractatus is here, which I should perhaps convert into tree form some time.

Kafka and Wittgenstein II

Remember this? Rebecca Schuman's book is now available to order, and Paul Johnston has a short ebook on Kafka out too (which does not mention Wittgenstein, as far as I know, but you can't have everything).
