It's the third Thursday of November, which means it's #WorldPhilosophyDay. A message from Audrey Azoulay (Dir. General of UNESCO) talks about how practising philosophy equips & enables us for understanding & synthesizing knowledge, perceiving meaning & principle, exchanging views, and more. Read it here http://unesdoc.unesco.org/images/0026/002661/266101e.pdf and UNESCO's page is here https://en.unesco.org/commemorations/philosophyday

I have upgraded to #Ubuntu 18.10. I think that this is my first time not using a LTS release.
Several of my students think that a sentence of the form 'A is sufficient for B' can be true when A is true and B is false. I've been trying to convince them that there is at least a reading where if A is true then B must be, and so that we can represent it as \(P \rightarrow Q\).
Looking for chapter authors for some parts of an Introduction to #Philosophy open textbook I'm helping to edit. Also looking for editor for Aesthetics section. Open textbook is free of cost, licensed to allow re-use (CC BY). This is a volunteer activity; we have no money, sadly, but a lot of enthusiasm!
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.

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 @firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
