The Future of Post-Human Language

To what extent is there really a universal structure, whether innate or not, of language for learning? Or conversely, is language learning mainly context-based?

The Future of Post-Human Law

What makes the rule of law so special that it is to conscientiously punish the “bad” doers and reward the “good” ones—such that, where there is the rule of law, peace and order are to be expected, so that “the rule of law is better than the rule of any individual”?Take the case of international law, as an illustration. While differ...

The Secret History of the Soul

What would Christianity be like without the soul? While most people would expect the Christian bible to reveal a highly traditional opposition of matter and spirit, the spirit forces of the Old and New Testaments are often surprisingly physical, dynamic, and practical, a matter of energy as much as ethics. The Secret History of the...
