Although the subject matter is not pornographic, comical, absurd, clever, outrageous, erotic, frightening, exciting, disturbing, fashionable or even narcissitic, and while digesting its contents won't grease the wheels of academic ambition, or prove profitable, professionally gratifying or even emotionally cathartic, and although it is not a link to a paper I've just posted on SSRN or published, or a forthcoming book for that matter, the following post at Ratio Juris on "facts and values, truth and objectivity" is intended to prompt reflection on topics that periodically deserve our close and considerate attention: (The post just prior to this one:, serves as a preface or propaedeutic to its assumptions of metaphysical relativism, perspectival rationalism, and contextual pluralism.)

It seems the comma broke the parenthetical link, so please try this:


Thanks for your indulgence.


Sarah L.

Aw, that's nice...but my mom has already read that post!

Patrick S. O'Donnell

In which case, I admire your mother's willingness to entertain philosophical topics within the strong constraints of a blog post.

On the other hand, if the remark is intended to communicate the reason why you yourself will not read the post(s), then I suggest it would be prudent if not wise to follow in your mother's footsteps, as the reason proffered is hardly a compelling or good one for declining to read the material yourself.

Now, Sarah, surely you've underestimated your teeming fans. Almost as many as Patrick has. Thanks for the links Patrick -- looking forward to reading this one.

Patrick S. O'Donnell

I'm just happy to learn Sarah was responding to your post and not my comment (sorry Sarah!). As my mother might have said, but didn't: it's not always about you Patrick.
