FLG Has Some Odd Files In His Dropbox

Some examples?

Anti-Climacus' dissertation.
Yuval Levin's dissertation.
An article by Arethusa.
An article by Withywindle.
An article entitled "Why Abortion is Immoral" from The Journal of Philosophy.
Plus, 184 files, articles mostly, on the political economy of international finance.

FLG reluctantly arrived at the conclusion that he is a gigantic dork. No offense intended toward those whose works are listed.

Have you actually read Marquis's article yet? If so, what was your opinion?

FLG said...

I thought I wrote a post about it, but I guess I didn't.

I have to admit that I found it extremely compelling, which I'm sure you knew that I would. Especially given that it's based around the wrongness of denying potential future experiences, which is a long-term time horizon argument.

My biggest problem with the abortion debate is that everybody makes up their mind pre-analytically and then casts around for arguments to support their already formed opinion. Before I read Marquis's piece, I was tentatively pro-choice (with grave misgivings), but he convinced me. Of course, that's just a prima facie argument, you could convince me otherwise on hard cases.
