I have a few ideas for a couple of blog series here on PP, initially inspired by recent discussion with Jonathan and Tim (no, Tim, I haven't forgotten that I said I'd blog about it!).
The two series will basically split into two themes: worldviews (for lack of a better word), and sciences.
In "Understanding...", the worldview series, I plan to discuss the following:
- Humanism (thanks, Tim)
- Agnosticism (inspired by Jonathan)
- Atheism or freethinkers
And, possibly, secularism (although I am uncertain). Would you want me to?
The series on the sciences and arts, "Learn about...", will hopefully feature a collection of guest writers. I am not, after all, a raving polymath. I plan to examine:
- Political Science
- History or HAPS
- Evolutionary science
I plan for this sciences series to have a pragmatic flavour, with the eye to explain the discipline and hopefully inspire people through seeing its relevance to the world around us.
In the meantime, and at least after I have blogged about Humanism, I might cover "Why Not Nihilism?"
Do you have any other ideas for either of the series that you would like to see covered? Or, even better, do you feel that you have a specialisation that you might be able to contribute to the second series?
