One other six months of the (De-) Extinct Weblog — Extinct

* Max Dresow writes…

Very like the inveterate bargain-hunter, the lifetime of the area of interest educational blogger is all concerning the chase. We’re continually trying to find the following large quarry: in our case, the obscure connection ready to be revealed by tangential philosophical evaluation. To the blog-thusiast, nothing compares to the virtually cocaine-like excessive that hours of analysis on Web Archive is sure to supply. Like, do you know that William James mentions Lyellian geology in his e book, Pragmatism? What the heck is that about?!??

Nonetheless, even those that dwell for the hunt should typically forged a backward eye. Final June, I recapped the primary six months of the relaunched Exinct weblog. Since then, one other six months have elapsed. Until you’ve got actually been paying consideration (anybody?), you are sure to have missed one thing. So here’s a second compilation of hyperlinks in your web-browsing pleasure.

Most likely that is the precise time to say “thanks!” to anybody who has visited the location, shared our posts on social media, or talked about one in all our essays to a good friend or colleague. You’re the indispensable connective tissue of the philosophy-slash-paleontology blogosphere (or “phil-paleontologophere,” if you happen to desire).

Additionally, let me give a heartfelt “thanks” to Yoshinari Yoshida for making me an image like the opposite Extinct people have! I assume nobody visiting a boutique paleontology weblog will want the joke defined to them, however if you happen to’re right here by chance and upset and confused, the image reveals me holding a bouquet of crinoids (colloquially generally known as sea lillies).

Okay. Listed below are these hyperlinks I discussed. First you can find the “Featured Essays,” then the newer entries in my “Problematica” sequence, and eventually a number of mini “information” essays. All essays are listed so as of look, starting with the earliest.
