Here I’ll archive some of my old papers and other works that I think worth a read.
- The Child-First Hypothesis of Language Acquisition. I argue that language emerged as a spandrel, parasitic on the syntax of bipedal walking. Unpublished.
2. WHAT DO THE HOLOCAUST, GLOBAL WARMING, AND THE FILIOQUE HAVE IN COMMON? (with Paul Viminitz)
Abstract: In this paper we offer a conjecture as to how it’s possible that people of identical epistemic integrity – by which we mean pretty close to none – can and do nonetheless arrive at polar opposite views about history, the environment, the ontological status of divine entities, and questions of similar real-world import. None of us comes out well. But neither do any of us come out worse than anyone else.
