Scalded Chait
I want to write about other things on Crooked Timber than Jonathan Chait. Really, I do. I have a half-finished essay on The Globalists that is going to be so much more worth your time (if only because the book itself is so good). But since he's writt...

Weird Questions
Having grumped about Annihilation, based on Jeff VanderMeer's novel [amazon], I'd like to make a post in praise of that author's anthology work. A couple years back, while working up a syllabus for my ‘Science Fiction and Philosophy' class, I conside...

Economics in Two Lessons: Chapter 4
Thanks to everyone who the first three chapters of my book, Economics in Two Lessons. I've learned a lot from the comments and made changes in response to some of them. These chapters have been a bit abstract, but now I'm moving on to some applicatio...

Adam Roberts, "The Thing Itself" - a Review
