A complete and consistent theory of value is essential to any sound and credible system of economic thought. At the foundations, prices and value creation reflect back on the stability or otherwise of the economy, the smoothness of its exchanges, and the effectiveness of its signalling mechanisms. The marginalist revolution inaugurated a simple and precisely […]

Apparently minus signs are being displayed as dashes, which will cause errors in the compiler. I’m working on a way to fix this display issue, but in the interim, I would suggest first copying the code into a text editor, performing a search / replace, and then pasting the result into the compiler. I’ll also […]

You probably should know these things didn’t happen anywhere near when you thought they did… Not everyone can be a world history master, especially when we tend to learn about it in specifically segmented classes like “European History” or “American Revolutionary History.” Maybe you have an exceptional grasp on the global historical timeline. But for […]

Who's Not Afraid of Artificial Intelligence?

Suman, your initial argument for why government agencies might be motivated to grant personhood to artificial agents is based on their desire to escape from having to take responsibility for the actions of such AIs. In terms of animal rights, you promote the idea of empathy distance. Speaking as a Canadian, I can’t help but […]

What follows are the opening paragraphs of a pdf document giving an argument for controlled natural languages in mathematics. At the recent Big Proof 2 conference in Edinburgh, I realized that a case must be made for developing a controlled natural language for mathematics. There is little consensus on this issue, and mathematicians and computer […]

What interests us here is to note, even if briefly, the cultural expression of a different cosmology, equally theological but at the opposite pole to the Byzantine, which completely negated Byzantine culture as a mode of life and approach to using the world. This was the cosmology that arose from Western theology and was embodied […]
