On the Human
I've made no secret of the fact that I try to avoid the noosphere type stuff, so what do I read online instead? Well, I think I've found a nice companion website to Telic Thoughts:
What's this about?
On the Human focuses on persons and the quasi-persons who surround them. As persons are biological, psychological, historical and moral beings, contributors to this site employ modes of inquiry from both the sciences and the humanities. We explore issues in metaphysics and biology, ethics and neuroscience, experimental philosophy and evolutionary psychology.

"Defects of empirical knowledge have less to do with the ways we go wrong in philosophy than defects of character do; such as the simple inability to shut up; determination to be thought deep; hunger for power; fear, especially the fear of an indifferent universe" (David Stove The Plato Cult and Other Philosophical Follies 1991: 188)
