I’ve been silent for a while, and this post is by no means a rebirth of this blog. I simply feel that I should make public some metaphilosophical considerations regarding some issues that seem to me of extreme importance and that demand that I break my usual silence. As it happens, some of my ideas here go against the apparent consensus among friends and colleagues out there, but I mean what follows in constructive, rather than confrontational spirit.
