How would Aristotle PPC? (Part II)
Eudaimonia, that word that’s right out there with the Tetragrammaton for its elusive inability to be defined. “Happiness” is probably the most common way we translate Aristotle’s classic concept into English, although some seem to prefer “flourishing.” But–like the Supreme Court’s classic definition of pornography: “you know it when you […]Read more: How would Aristotle PPC?

How would M.M. Bakhtin PPC?
Okay, M.M. Bakhtin isn’t quite a “philosopher” but more a half-way point between a “philosopher” and a “literary critic” but what, really, is a philosopher anyway?

Or so we’re taught. And of course, his pin factory metaphor is still remembered as the classic example […]Read more: How would Adam Smith PPC?
How would Plato PPC? (Part III)
I’ve written a few previous pieces about how Plato would PPC.
