My course site for Intro to Philosophy is up and running! blogs.ubc.ca/phil102

We're starting with Plato & Socrates, next week. This past week was just one course meeting, introducing the course overall.

@chendricks Thanks for the link!

I'm now reading this goodreads.com/book/show/30300.: just finished Euthyphro and started on Apology, and your week no 1 podcast links look very useful!!

@aqsalose Excellent! So glad you are finding stuff useful. We are reading the freebie versions of Euthyphro & Apology. The translations aren’t quite as good as the book you have, but they’re ok for intro level and they’re, well, free!

Scholar Social

A Mastodon instance for academics

Scholar Social is meant for: researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"A Mastodon profile you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @socrates@scholar.social and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
