Back Into the Field

So, yes, I’m back.

The years since I last posted regularly to this blog have been turbulent, both personally and otherwise, and I found myself drawn away and distracted. Now, though, I think I can make good use of this space to sketch new ideas, to try out new distinctions and new connections, and generally to do the work of a philosopher without the pressures of formal publication.

I’ve changed the name of the blog from “Field Notes of a Practical Ethicist. I was briefly tempted to start over with an entirely new blog, but thought there might be some (slight) value in leaving my old posts here as a kind of archive.

I suppose what I’ve settled on is something like a “soft reboot”. Hence the tagline: “New Field Notes . . .”

We’ll see how this goes.
