Much of philosophy appears to be done from an Intelligent Design viewpoint.  For example, philosophy of language is often presented as if it described design principles for language.  Epistemology is presented as if it were design principles for a knowledge system.

It is my contention that many of the problems of philosophy come from attempting to give design principles for what is actually the product of evolution (this includes cultural evolution).  This blog is oriented toward looking at things from a more evolutionary perspective.

Other topics

I also post, from time to time, on various other topics that interest  me.

About me

I’m a semi-retired mathematician and computer scientist.  I became interested in how humans learn, originally for pedagogical reasons.  And that interest grew into my studying human cognition, which in turn leads to issues in philosophy.
