Alt-Epistemology

My preoccupation as a graduate student in philosophy was epistemology, an exploration of how we “know” what we think we know. I was and am fascinated by the way the human mind makes things up! And what that means for our connection/disconnection with reality! And with each other! And with our own inner lives!

A few months ago, I began publishing posts on what I call Alt-Epistemology, essentially wild takes on all this. Had I turned any of these posts in as a graduate student 40 years ago at Boston University, I would have received an “F.”

Hopefully, I’ll get around to listing all of them here. Meanwhile, you can do a search for them yourself on the site, if you are as interested as I am in scrambling your brain to the point where it begins to let in the light.
