Polemical contributions

One of the pastimes I've indulged in now and then over the years, was debating topics of interest to me. Some of those discussions took place on a electronic discussion system ran by my employer. A section of that system was explicitly set up for free, wide-ranging discussions, and it quickly became very lively. So much so, in fact, that the management eventually decided to shut it down, after which all other uses of the system rapidly petered out. Here are some of my contributions to those debates, which may be of some limited interest to people interested in such topics.

Ethics (1991)            Religion (1993)
Buddhism (1993)            Humanism (1993)

There are also other situations which occasionally provoke me to write down my thoughts on some philosophical subjects. Here are some of such outpouring:

Befriending the Liar Paradox (winner of the Chadwick Prize 2010)
The Euthyphro Dilemma (2008)
Anselm's Ontological Argument (2008)
2 + 2 = 1 (2012)
Is Mathematics Philosophically Analytical? (2008)
Free Will and Determinism (2007)
PI Is a Concept (1994)
Alleged Paradigm Clash (1994)
Logic Mundane and Divine (1993)
