First Things

Motivated by some discussions last fall and an unusually light class load this semester, I've been reading through quite a few philosophical and theological books -- slightly different from my normal, politically-themed reading. Some of the ideas I found struck me as interesting enough to bring up in conversation. Many led to thought-provoking conversations, and after receiving several suggestions, I've decided to start posting some of the ideas that have proven to be the most intriguing. Such topics include logic, truth, God, and morality, some of which are often seen as unrelated or even contradictory.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm no expert, and the self-taught nature of my reading in this area is apt to lead to many flaws. Still, all the conversations I've had have been, at the least, mutually beneficial. Hopefully this blog will have a similar result.

As a side note, there will still likely be random posts about politics, games, books, academia, and other random subjects. Reader beware?
