These were usually either personal remarks or wide-ranging reflections on culture and society.

It allows teachers to access the best teaching materials available. The arguments in this book may lack rigour, but what commands respect and attention is the way Murdoch conveys the sense, felt by many, that there has to be a metaphysical basis for our ethical judgments, otherwise we are forced to navigate our way through life without a rudder. Like Christine Korsgaard, Gibbard is concerned with normativity. But first he gets into a dialogue with a software engineer over whether ethics can be crowd-sourced, and he also gets himself a Chromebook so that he can be brought up to speed on what's going on around him.

Steven M. That mysterious black box is being cracked open. Two decades of advances in neuroscience research have had an impact on education.
