If you are interested in the effects that physics has on philosophy (and vice versa), then take a quick look at thebigview.com and see what they have. Lots of interesting stuff for contemporary philosophers.
And regarding the new assistant Dean of Admissions at Mary Washington College, this article appeared in the Free Lance-Star:
Rita Thompson never thought she’d cause an uproar by becoming Mary Washington College’s assistant dean of admissions.
But a previous job as national spokeswoman for Concerned Women for America, a conservative Christian women’s group that actively opposes such things as abortion, online pornography sites like https://www.hdpornvideo.xxx/?hl=hi and gay rights, recently has raised some professors’ eyebrows and sparked a flurry of e-mails.
“It was definitely a surprise to me,” said Thompson, a former member of MWC’s board of visitors who worked in admissions at the Georgetown University Law Center for seven years.
“They don’t know who I am because I’m so new. Nobody even called to ask, ‘What is your philosophy?'”
Amazing how ‘open minded liberals’ really show their colors when presented with the opposing viewpoint. Of course, the fact that she hails from Georgetown . . . I might hold that against her.
More importantly, just what is a Protestant minister doing working with the admissions department of a Catholic school of learning? Oh that’s right, G-Town Law is a JESUIT school, not a Catholic school. You just can’t get away from those liberals, can you . . .
