Starting to prepare a talk about the relation between DH and philosophy and thinking that I could just more or less repeat what I wrote on that topic 7 years ago. Kind of depressing. Of course, there are exceptions (@pence ;) ).
The journal which I am currently serving as Editor-in-Chief has its own Mastodon account now. Say hello to @hpla.
If you write on the history of philosophy, and you can identify with the journals mission and motto, feel free to submit your articles!
On Monday, one of our visiting research scholars, Divya Kumar-Dumas, will be giving a public, online lecture entitled "If Ports Were Landscapes and Goods Were Beings: Stories from First-Millennium South Asia."
The lecture is free, but advance registration is required. More info: https://isaw.nyu.edu/events/first-millennium-south-asia
"The term 'port' in early South Asia can refer to at least four types of locations: landing places and marketplaces in texts, findspots of artifacts from ..."
It's so neat seeing all the activity around the LHC right now. I've been working for one of the upgrades for almost a year now and we are still years away from installing our detector upgrades.
I suppose in a way it's inspiring. It's nice to see so many people excited about beam luminosity and collision rates and fresh data around the corner.
A bit of #florespondence from the Royal Greenhouses in Brussels, open a few weeks a year and, for the first time ever, at night
Salve, #AncMed (formely #Classics ) people. One thing I really need to read because of engaging with #Boethius lately is a history of the term "God" in #AncientPhilosophy. My students regulary ask what philosophers from the 5th c. BCE up to the 5th c. CE do *exactly* mean/imagine/describe when they use it. And it *is* pretty tricky to differentiate between the times and users, don't you think? Any recommendations on literature I should check out? Boosting appreciated. #AncMedToots
Hello everyone ! I am a PhD candidate in philosophy. I just finished my dissertation about Bergson and biology and started working on ethology. I cure my academic anxieties by cuddling my border collie and running 20 kilometres a day with him. And sharing with other academics ! #introduction
On Fridays my academic practice is with a 2-year-old.
My daughter and granddaughter lost the child care they had for the semester because of staffing issues, so us parents have been trying to stand in the breach. My wife stays with the 2-year-old on Tuesdays, and I stay with her on Fridays.
It's not without its stresses - breaking the expectation that I'm on campus five days a week has been a thing - but it's been an unexpected breath of fresh air.
#Introduction Hi everyone!
My name is Sylvia. I'm a Belgian philosopher of science 🦉 🔬. I like thinking about infinitesimal probabilities & paradoxes.

Hi. I'm an ecologist who works (mostly) on ants, I run a big field station in the Mojave Desert, I wrote The Chicago Guide to College Science Teaching, I have a blog called Small Pond Science about science in teaching-focused universities, I'm interested in community science and equitable and just practices in STEM. I’m here to discuss but not to argue.
By way of his pinned introduction post (https://mastodon.social/@rdmond/108198788689241507), I've come across some #Python #AncientStudies packages by @rdmond, including:
"juliandata: Simple conversions between Julian Dates and Julian/Gregorian calendar dates, supporting ancient dates (BCE)": https://pypi.org/project/juliandate/
plus packages for working with some ancient Athenian and Babylonian calendric and numeric systems
I should follow my own advice and write a new #Introduction:
Hello! I'm a philosopher and historian of evolutionary biology. I also work in the digital humanities, as well as some in ethics, especially ethics of biotechnology. I'm a 🇺🇸 emigrant and a 🇧🇪 immigrant. I've taught for a few years at the Université catholique de Louvain in Louvain-la-Neuve (donc parfois des posts en FR médiocre aussi).
Philosopher. Not in Moscow. Early modern stuff. DH.
