This blog began as an exercise in making sense of the profound effect that the Occupy movement had on me and I would like to reserve a place for thoughts relating to Occupy in this blog. Occupy’s power and potential pressed upon me the urgency to write in a larger historical and political context, marking an origin for the project of this blog. Those posts, together with other commentaries on politics and links to Occupy-related Media will appear in the category:
Occupy – Politics.
As a philosopher first, who loves wisdom and seeks a joyful/critical engagement with concepts, many of the posts in this blog will be on this topic. Thoughts on ontology, metaphysics, religion, myth, science, ethics, etc. will be found in:
I have also begun experimenting with a category called ‘Critical Fantasies’. Here, stories from all over the cultural field, with an emphasis on fantasy, will be interpreted to bring out their significance for philosophy and/or contemporary political issues.
Everything else (sometimes poetry or rant or short comments). Will be in “Wandering Thoughts”.
My name is Bill Rose and I received a BA in Philosophy at The University of California Santa Cruz in 2009.
