The Counsel of Trent

writing is thinking

Three things that make me happy.

1. Goldfinches are amazing to watch (two have lit on our flowering sage).

2. Stewart Cohen is an amazing philosopher (been reading him all morning).

3. Bleu cheese is an unexpected treat in almost any dish (on a blackened burger for dinner, in scrambled eggs for breakfast).

Hi Trent,

Why is Mr. Cohen amazing? What's so special about him? What are his main insights? I know only that he teaches epistemology at Arizona State University.

Thanks.

zzHe is attentive to the finer distinctions which too many professional philosophers miss, he expresses himself with the utmost of clarity, he knows the relevant literature inside out, and he doesn't jump on fads yet he's innovative. He's an exemplar for analytic philosophy.
