Ecce Homo

I’m a philosophy graduate student/teacher developing my dissertation. My natural tendency is to talk all my ideas out before writing—except when I am writing them out informally to people who are reading. So, in order to do the painstaking work of brainstorming and honing my ideas for my dissertation, I am deciding to blog them because it will feel like I’m writing to readers and not simply to myself.

Even if there actually are no readers.

Well, at least at first.
