Eric has a great post up on The Splintered Mind about the phenomenon of what he calls “seeming smart” in philosophy– and its relationship to race, gender, age and class. (I’m sure there are similar things to be said about its relationship to disability issues, and although Eric doesn’t mention that I’m sure he’d be friendly to the suggestion.)
On Seeming Smart (and race, gender, age and class) March 26, 2010
The “World’s Most Feminist Country” apparently – discuss!
I wonder why there is such a strong consensus behind the country’s decision to ban all strip clubs – even among men. Or are there good reasons to be suspicious about the accuracy of the 2007 poll results? Can any Icelandic readers help the rest of us understand the secret of your country’s success?
It would also be interesting to hear from those mentioned in the article who believe that strip clubs are ‘empowering’. Is there anything to this argument?
