Discussion roundups, as distinct from my weekly link roundups, are semi-regular articles that I use to list all the discussions that I participate in which are, in my perspective at least, interesting, insightful, and worth following as a development of the ideas in this blog and elsewhere.
On This Site!
The last discussion roundup was on August 30. Since then, there have been 64 additional comments added to this site. In this edition:
…Bayes returns for another discussion about priors in “Bayes Theorem is Best Theorem”.
…More talk about Many Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics, including “how many worlds are there?” in “Continuing Comments on Randomness and Naturalism.
…A bit about what would be accomplished by taking “God” out of the Pledge, motto, and money in “Taking Out God is Equality, Not Atheism”.
…A discussion of the validity of psychology in “Weekly Link Roundup #43″.
…Wondering how much of philosophy are just trivial debates over definitions in “Discussion Roundup #1″.
…The neurological motivation for donation in “Why Don’t People Help Others More?”.
…More on terminal values in “Jumping Over the Is-Ought Gap (Draft)”.
Some Things That Update Have Been Updated
Rounding out the discussion, over at TheWarfareIsMental, we continue to discuss utilitarianism on “Is It Moral to Kill Iranian Nuclear Scientists?”.
More utilitarianism is discussed on Reddit in the self-explanatory “Utilitarianism and Future Utility Question”.
I now blog at EverydayUtilitarian.com. I hope you'll join me at my new blog! This page has been left as an archive.
