This Blog Is About - What?

This blog is about - what? All will hopefully become clear as the blog develops itself over the following days and weeks. At the moment it is merely an idea.

The idea is to use the blog to talk about philosophy. The focus of the blog is philosophy in relation to current events, so each time a blog post begins, it will use as its starting point an event from the news, and develop a philosophical argument from that.

It may contain a moral, that is, something we can learn from the news event, but not necessarily. The idea is not to stick rigidly to drawing a moral, but obviously if there is one to be drawn, then we will probably draw it.

The main idea of this blog, though, is to have fun, and to show the reader that doing philosophy can be fun, if you approach it the right way.
