Evolving Thoughts

Evolution, culture, philosophy and chocolate! John Wilkins' continuing struggle to come to terms with impermanence... "Humanus sum, nihil humanum a me alienum puto" - Terence

Here's a hint. Never agree to teach a university subject when you still have a fulltime job!

Philosophy of Biology - to make matters worse, a brand new version of that subject for the University of Melbourne, and so one we had to write the curriculum for - is the subject, and I was only supposed to do 4 lectures and a tutorial. Now I am doing 12 lectures, two tutes and the enrolment has gone from 40ish to 75. Dang.

So this blog has been rather moribund of late. I do apologise. I intend to prove something sometime somehow in a forthcoming post, and it will involve Wittgenstein, but bear with me.

I have to go write two lectures now on the units of evolution. Shoot me now.
