Apropos of Nothing

Pixel Chris BatemanWelcome back to Only a Game, the curious meanderings of philosopher and game designer Chris Bateman!

Last year, I published a short-form philosophy book, Wikipedia Knows Nothing, which asks us to consider whether knowledge is best understood as practices (and thus knowing cannot be reduced to the mere repetition of facts). It’s available as a free PDF, so if you’re unfamiliar with my philosophy this is a great place to start. Drawn to the merits of short-form philosophy, I have already begun work on my next project, tentatively entitled The Virtuous Cyborg, and my preparations for this will go down here on Only a Game. More on this very shortly.

I am also still working on the wealth of material that came out of my discussions last year with Babette Babich, and hope to have another installment of this some time in the Spring. If you missed the first dialogue, where we discussed continental philosophy and its current state of endangerment, check out December’s Last of the Continental Philosophers. The next discussion should dovetail with the thread that I’ll be opening up in the Tuesdays to follow. 

Hope you’ll join in when the spirit moves you, and I’ll see you in the comments here or on Twitter, which has largely usurped Typepad as the source of commentary on my material.

The Game begins in earnest next week.
